Doing Stuff

It's dead easy to be a photographer. Go out, take some images and you're done. Doing Stuff. Right! What stuff exactly if you want to make a living at it? Point 1 Just going out and hoping that your images are good enough to sell and make a living from is just, well impractical.

Start A Photography Business?

Dawn to Dusk

Not to be confused with Dusk till Dawn, which is a vampire movie starring George Clooney, not a bad movie but poor ending. This relates to Dawn to Dusk. Normally a person of the late evening it was my first trip out before sunrise for several months. There are a few things I thought I would share with you.
