Something to Think About - Restarting One's Photo Business!

Note, this post is not about where everyone else stands in regards to Covid-19.  That said,...I (ike many of you) have had a passion for photography for nearly some 20 years or so,...and although my first SLR was an Oly OMD-10, my first DSLR was the veteran Nikon D-70,..hence my handle created here on DpR,..."JMD-70".  I have owned a couple of Canons (20D and 5D),...but all others have been Nikons up to my current bodies.  Although I'm thinking the next release of the Z6 / Z7,...that is,..Z6s / Z7s will be the greatest piece of MILC engineering Nikon has ever produced.  However, given my current age and the Coronavirus duration likely lasting for many years, I have lost heart in continuing my photo business.  My business, many of your businesses was really in high demand in my area, as I was booked for many of my Client's event for the next 5-10 years easy!  And like many of you, I'm a personal photographer,...and like to go about doing my work as a photographer without worries of any kind.  Okay,...I have worried about a card or speedlight failing.  That said, Covid-19 changed all of that innocence!

So, I'm not sure if I'll even attempt to restart the business,..with or without a vaccine, as it will be years before event start re-occurring to the level they once were.

And to that I ask, are any of you here in the same boat?

Note:  I know this post mentions the Coronavirus,...however, this post is not to be taken out of context regarding anyone's beliefs regarding the state of current matters, so I ask anyone replying to this post to please refrain from making this post about politics as it relates to what one believes or doesn't believe regarding Covid-19.  I thank you,...and I'm sure the Moderators thank you as well.

Naturally, if the Moderator takes exception to this post,'ll be Deleted soon,...or Locked!
