Ever thought about photography as a career? Sounds pretty easy. Buy a digital camera, a few lenses and accessories and start shooting weddings, senior portraits, first Communions and other important milestones. Maybe get a press pass and shoot concerts and other fun events.
Well as the full-time professionals can tell you, it’s a lot more than spending time on site shooting events. If it’s a real job there are the inglorious tasks that take away from the thrill of photography.
The good folks at Fotoseeds, a project that aims to have photographers help photographers grow, have created a cool illustration that describes the challenges of making photography a career. Enjoy.
