    The best things about having your own Photography Business is the
    freedom to start work when you choose, finish the day when it suits,
    attend your children's school functions, meet someone for lunch etc.
    You can structure your day the way you see fit and the work is
    interesting and enjoyable. Your camera and bag can stay in the car and
    your home becomes your office. It doesn't matter whether you use
    traditional or digital cameras, this e-book applies to both. You just
    get better and better at taking photos. If you enjoy taking photos,
    then starting your own photography business makes sense, doesn't it?!
    You now need to know how to make it profitable and earn a decent income
    from it. Let me make it very clear that this information is only going
    to be useful to you if you have a passion for photography. You don't
    have to be an award winning photographer, just keen. You must enjoy
    photography for this to be successful for you. If you're just looking
    for a job doing something different, I don't recommend you read any
    Make sure that when you are old enough to earn a living, try to make it
    something you enjoy and in which you have an interest - then you'll do
    a good job & you'll be happy for a lot longer!
    Unfortunately, I didn't take heed until much later in life but you
    don't have to wait that long and if you have, then it's never, ever
    too late to change.
    Some of my greatest loves and joys in life have come from photography.
    You can grasp today and store the moment for a long time, you can
    create joy and interest for others, (be it weddings, a newborn child,
    sport, school photos, family treasures, photojournalism, nature and
    educational areas etc.). This very passion for memories and the
    continual proud moments millions of people have, ensures the future of
    photography. It's a safe career, it's interesting, always changing and
    it can be very, very lucrative. "The sky is the limit", as they
    say. If you enjoy photography, don't settle for anything less!

    You said it. Big problem of being independent photographer is
    GETTING PAID. Neighbor dabbling in wedding photo work had huge
    problems with payment - and ended up with many used cars as 'payment'
    from clients who never paid in money. Fortunately for him, it worked
    fine - as he had good job the wedding-photo stuff just was moonlighting

  4. I did it for a living for 16+ years. I didn't really have a problem
    with weddings. The problem was that I was really working for Kodak, the
    lab, the album companies, etc.

    That's why contracts were invented, especially the ones that stipulate
    payment deadlines.

    Unspam quoted me:
    and replied:
    Used to actively be a collections lawyer in the 1990s - and I can
    tell you even big finance companies had REAL trouble collecting on
    defaulted loans back then, despite written contracts. Whether they
    tried themselves or hired me, a lot of these loans - in spite of
    written contracts - were uncollectable.
    Getting a judgment is easy; very rarely a problem. But collecting
    that judgment is generally difficult.

  7. What a load of bollocks. The main thing about running your own
    business is having to be at the immediate beck and call of clients. If
    you're lucky, you'll get enough work to fill MUCH longer hours than an
    employee would put in. If you don't, you'll go bust.
