Nope – not me.  I have been a hobbyist photographer for more than 25 years.  I developed an illness that makes it hard to work a straight 40-hour work week and am hoping to take on photography work here and there on my good days and one day build it up high enough to be able to make enough to not be on disability anymore.  I considered pursuing graphic arts/photography or a degree in journalism out of high school but was talked out of it by parents who wanted me to be more practical, so now that I can’t do what I’m used to doing, hoping maybe my creativity can help me be productive on my good days often enough to provide for myself.
