It's a dream for many amateur photographers to go pro and earn money from their hobby, but how should you go about doing this?

Maybe you're considering becoming a wedding or pro portrait photographer, or perhaps like the idea of submitting photos to a library. This is the section to ask questions about photography as a profession and also to hear from anyone who's actually doing it in practice.

We'd love to hear from anyone who's working (or worked) as a pro photographer to learn how they got into their career and any tips they'd give to those who'd like to make the transition. Is it like being paid for your hobby, or is there a big difference between the photos you take for your job and your leisure?

You're very welcome to show/link your photos here.
When you do, please follow these hints/tips:
1. Place your photos somewhere (like flickr, or your own website). You cannot store pictures at the Camera labs website!
2. If you just want to link to your pics, that's easy! Use the following scheme:
[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/your-name/937299495/][u]your-descriptive-text[/u][/url]
or more simple [url=link2pic][u]text[/u][/url]
3. If you want your photo to be displayed in your post with a link to the original, replace the descriptive text by the address for your thumbnail like this:
[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/your-name/937299495/][img]http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1263/937299495_d694ab84a1_m.jpg[/img][/url]
or more simple [url=link2web][img]link2thumbnail[/img][/url]

Please keep your thumbnails reasonable (500x375 or max (!) 1024x768). Lager thumbnails will be deleted without further warning!

Hi HNV,

I'm sorry to have to move your first post with us (a warm welcome by the way). I didn't think it was comfortable in this section and even less so as an addendum to Gordon's introductory thread. Please head on over to http://www.cameralabs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3784 in the "Buying a new camera" forum to continue the conversation. Thanks for your understanding.

Bob.
