Hi guys I am Antoine from Malta and I would like to ask you what to have to become a freelance photographer. A great camera, lens, imagination, qualifications, skill, money, or time ?
thanks for the great forum site and keep it up for the up to date information.

a strong portfolio and possibly some kind of photography qualification are essential.

a good portfolio on a clean website & a lot of skill(usually you need a few years for that). that's all.

A clean modern looking website stating what you can offer which also will show examples of your work (do not add prices for work).

You will also need good modern looking business cards for networking tools to pass onto people, friends, strangers.

Market research the area you live in to find competition and prices so you can offer something unique and offer a competitive price range.

The ability to understand a clients brief and be able to offer what they want or be able to adapt to the requirments (skills).
