In reply to WIMorrison, Apr 17, 2013

A couple of years ago I was at a lecture by Andy Rouse a well known and highly respected photographer in UK and he was asked a question by a young chap in the audience along the same lines as yours about becoming a professional photographer.

The answer was that the chap should get a good job that pays a lot of money and build up a healthy bank balance and after that reconsider becoming a pro photographer

I know more people that have given up trying to make a living in this game than that are still doing it, sad truth is that everyone has a camera these days and they wont pay the rates you need to earn a living wage.
