Photography as a profession / source of income
Feb 23, 2013

Someone so passionate about photography might end up doing it full time.  But for an average Joe, can that be a reasonable source of income?  Would it make sense to recommend or enter  this as a full time profession?  Are there too many photographers out there making it very competitive?

I mean if someone studied say engineering for a few years, he/she is guaranteed to make a certain amount of money.  How much ball park can a average Joe make by Photography as a day time job (say in a metropolitan area with lots going on like the SF bay area)?  Let us ignore the exceptions / one in too many who may make it big in this field.
