p.1 #1 · Going against the grain here...


Well, it would seem quite a few on here are giving up on wedding photography and turning their attention elsewhere.

I, on the other hand am about to go full time!

After nearly nine years of running a photographic dept for an international IT company the studio is closing down next month.

To top it off we are expecting our third child about a week before the closure.

Hope I can make a go of it.

Must admit though... I am $h!ting myself!

Wish me luck...

Cheers
BK

Thanks fellas.

I'm gonna give it my best shot.

If it doesn't work out I'm selling all my gear and I will need to get myself a real job!

Yeah, I am a full time photographer.

I was just fortunate to be a full time staff photographer.

The safety net has been whipped away...

I wish it works for you economically, as an artist - you're already developed!

Dude, you live in a country with universal healthcare. Unlike most of the people who post here (i.e., folks from the US), your health insurance isn't tied to your job. Go for it!

Yeah , I was faced with a similar situation when my now 2 yr old was getting ready to pop out .

Don't sweat it bro. Just push harder & market more & you'll be alright.

Also, congrats on little person number 3. lol

Good luck to you, it seems like many times when a company cuts out an in house job they still need the service but want to pay for it differently. Maybe you can continue working with your former company instead of for them.
