The average photographer makes less than $18,000 US per year. Very few ever hope to make it a full time business. Yet it is possible – I know because I’ve done it! Some of the best advice I ever received is to not go it alone. Find mentors that are doing what you want to do. Read their books. Attend their training sessions. Work with them!

The road to success has already been paved by others; just choose to drive down the same road!
