    As you can see, I'm new here. I started my photography business (portraits) like a year ago. My family's not really into photography (most are working in boring fields that they themselves don't really like) so it was difficult for me to convince them, like everyone else, that there's money in photography (yeah, it rhymes! Grin). I am 'married' to photography so there's nothing that they can do anyway. Grin Given that I already have 3 great cameras (I won't discriminate any of them), I bought other necessary equipment that I need (like upgrading my tripod to Manfrotto 028B Studio Pro Triman Tripod and purchasing support stands and some hand-painted muslin backdrops from http://www.aurabackdrops.com/) for my small studio and it proved to give back a decent amount of money for months now. I needed to spend some money for marketing, but it's worth it too.

    I still have lots to learn, I know, but I'm getting the hang of it.

    Welcome to the site Grin

    For me photography is a hobby - whilst I'd welcome the chance to make some money from it I don't want to risk losing the relaxation the hobby gives me by being pressured to earn.

    With the flux of people accessing photography since the advent of digital cameras - the move to pro has become more challenging. I salute anyone who makes the move and manages to make a living from it.

    Strange you have a photography business, yet you say you are an enthusiast? Never mind, but welcome to EPZ
