I know all kinds of people who are suddenly pro photographers that used to be actors, advertising people, movie production, etc. People think it's easy (after all, you CAN get very rich quickly if you give a bit of $$ to one of the rock stars ;-)
Attended a free webinar he hosted on tuesday. In it, he mentions that he works as a swing shift supervisor at a missouri power plant. Photography is just a hobby for him!
Makes it all the more impressive but kind of depressing that a guy who photographs for vogue magazine and does major product campaigns can't make a full living at it!
I only know one person personally, who makes their living solely form photography. All the rest have spouses with great jobs.(attorney, doctor, state worker, etc.) It's really hard to make a good living in photography now. Not impossible, just harder than it used to be.
Yep...That's what I'm realizing. I thought it would be better than being a musician (my formal training) but I'm beginning to realize it's not much different.
