Becoming A Full Time Photographer

Chris Dodkin

West Coast Correspondent have worked up a nice little teaser article on what it takes to make the jump to being a pro.

Certainly food for thought...


Making a living with your photography is the dream of many a photographer. Like most photographers we start out as an enthusiast and then we will photograph a friends wedding or take some family portraits for a relative; the next thing you know, the phone is starting to ring asking to hire you. If you embrace the opportunities that you get and start charging money for the services you perform you might see that there is the possibility of you making real money for the work you do. Eventually you might find that you are getting so much work it's time to make the transition to full time self employment.
