I had thought about making photography a full-time business in the near future, but ran into the “how on earth would I make this work” hump and decided to pursue better full-time employment (which I did, and got a new better job) but I am continuing to shoot on the side. There’s no way right now that I could make this full-time, and I’m ok with that. I enjoy it and it’s supplemental income (and helps when I want to upgrade/add equipment). But I do quality work and only take on jobs I know I can do and have the right equipment for. I don’t advertise that I do weddings, newborns, or boudoir. I do occasional weddings for people I know. I have done only one newborn shoot that was great but I leave that up to the people who have good studio setups for it because I am limited that way. Yes, photographers do become extremely successful, but many have the right resources that not everyone has.
