You've got Milwaukee and the 'burbs to work there, like West Allis, New Berlin, Greenfield, Waukesha, etc. Football season's almost here, and there'll be parents lookin' to buy...

Make sure "all your ducks are in a row" and have printed samples, a logical and clear price list, some ideas for poses, concepts, etc already in your mind so you can hit the ground running. Developing a business from scratch is extremely difficult, however, senior portraits can actually be one of the "easiest" ways to break in. Charge a $100 sitting fee just so your expenses and immediate time are covered, and offer every kind of photo product available.
Maybe I interpreted the OP mistakenly, but I got the impression that the guy is just trying to pocket some extra income to support himself while he looks for a steady engineering job. I was in school when I was looking for a fulltime job and I could barely handle those two responsibilities ... finding a job was almost a full-time job in and of itself!
Heck, OP might even have an offer by the time football season ramps up. It might be better to recommend some quick and dirty jobs with little initial investment whose ties can be broken fairly easily. OP did mention he might want to do photography full time but I didn't get the impression that he was looking to start now.
