The Photography Business – What Is Professional Photography?
Being a professional photographer is not easy, there is a lot of hard work and dedication required before you get to the stage where you really start enjoying it. Many professional photographers first began as hobbyist photographers. As their passion for photography progressed, so did their skill set and as a result their portfolio. Now they are making six figure incomes photographing celebrities, politicians, business leaders and wedding couples. However, before becoming a full-time professional photographer some photographers will pursue a hobby, such as taking photos of sports stars. In this case, the passion will help them focus on capturing the right images and help them to develop a portfolio that will make their name known in the industry.
