    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!

  2. Oh, this clown's been in business - not.

    Having your own service business means dancing to whatever tune the
    current client dreams up today and doing it when and where
    the client wants the dance done.
    So you are always in your office and you never get to go home.

    Er, no.
    'Cause this book sure won't tell you how.
    If you didn't make it it is because you lacked the passion,
    not that you fell for the scam.
    First sensible thing to come from the man's mouth...

  3. Now c'mon, Nicholas! Starting your own business IS easy! People
    wouldn't be allowed to publish it in umpteen million books if it wasn't

    Staying in business past the first year is, of course, another
    matter. And another set of books.

    By the way, I've got a special offer now on my new book, "Writing
    Self-Help Books For Dummies, For Dummies" - but now, and get "I'm A
    Photographer You've Never Heard Of Nor Seen My Work And I Can Tell You How
    To Be Successful" for only $12.00!

    November 15, 2006, from Lloyd Erlick,

    There should be a Latin or Greek name for
    this type of dodge. It's surely a gambit
    we've seen many times in many forms.
    Something that means 'your failure is all
    your own fault'.

    One that comes to mind is the 'stock
    photography' site into which yu load as many
    of your pictures as you like and hope a buyer
    comes along once in a while. But the website
    managers put no effort into marketing you,
    that's all on you ... and so is your failure,
    you loser...

    The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
    But in ourselves, that we are underlings."

    Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt.
    Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
    But I know, it's my own damn fault."

    "Caveat Emptor" doesn't cover it?
