MacBook Pro or MacBook Air?

I have never owned a Mac before and am going to get one soon because my last laptop was broken. I am in high school and plan to take the new Mac to college and I need it to last. I would use it mostly for school work but also for music and photos and movies, etc. I am planning in going into a major that requires video and photo editing and the other school basics. I also hate my computers to be slow or to run out of room. I would also be taking it around with me everywhere so it needs to be kind of small (which I am fine with). Can you please give me suggestions on which Mac to get? My friends are telling me MacBook Pro and my aunt is telling me MacBook Air. I need some reasons for which one is better and I would like to hear complaints about each Mac.
