Re: What choice do you have?

Going in a different direction entirely, what kind of living do pros make over your way. I read somewhere recently that the average pre-tax income of a professional photographer in the UK was something like £19,000 per year - about the same as a filing clerk.  There are a tiny handful of big names like David Bailey etc who presumably make a good living but for most budding pros the advice seems to be "don't".

As far as I can tell, top landscape pros like Joe Cornish, Charlie Waite etc make their income from anciliary activities such a running workshops, photo holidays, writing, training videos rather than directly from selling their work.
