    This is absolutely correct. I have dabbled into the photography realm and found out the hard way, it is not easy work. Just like anything else it requires a lot of practice (years of dedication) and a heavy amount of investment on equipment. Aside from learning how to be a great photographer, you’ll also need great business skills. At the end it’s all about your sales skills. There are plenty of photographers with amazing skills, but those that lack business / interpersonal skills are hindered.

    Not to discourage anyone, but if you are willing to take the time to learn then there are definitely profits to reap!

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a feedback! Yes, it is definitely not easy work as most make it out to be. I agree on all points, especially the sales aspect! Really glad you brought that up.

    I have seen so many people getting compliments on Instagram for their pictures and they became self proclaimed professional photographers. Thank you for shedding some light on less spoken aspect of pro photography.

    Hi Jordan,

    I see that all the time also. It’s a great ego booster, but can steer people in the wrong direction. Thank’s for chiming in!
