3 Ugly Truths Every Photographer Has Had To Face

How To Find Ways To Improve Your Photography And Make Money As A Professional

I vividly remember the first time I held a DSLR. I had been waiting for so long to get one – thinking about the pros and the cons and whether I would actually have use for it. When I finally decided to get it and opened the box, it was almost magical. Well, it was a long time ago – and I’ve certainly gotten a reality-check since then. Being a photographer is not like most people think it is; it certainly isn’t the way I pictured it in my mind all those years ago.



I am so glad that I am doing this for personal pleasure at this stage of the game. I would hate to be under pressure to become good at it just because I needed the income. *sigh*

Same here Deedee, I really don’t consider myself a professional but a self taught amateur, I’ve been photographing for over 20 years on and off and still learning new stuff that my brain won’t or can’t retain ? as for doing it for an income that’s not me ! I enjoy the thanks from my friends & family when I hand them a disk of my photos ? I do it just because I love my hobby ? a free meal now and then or a gift card is good enough !

Exactly! ๐Ÿ™‚ Been photographing for about 50 years, and still do not consider myself a Pro-pro, because I’m not out there All The Time. It’s a fun hobby, with high ‘enthusiast’ end equipment. People tell me I should do it for a living, but I don’t really want to, I have other hobbies, as well as photography. I’m retired now from my day job. I don’t want ‘restrictions’ in my life, there are enough of them without deliberately setting yourself up ๐Ÿ˜‰
