Hi all,

I happened to come across some old threads about photography business and have gotten a lot of great advice and suggestions from them. Would like to thank those people for sharing their experiences

I have some questions to ask solo full time photographers, be it portrait or wedding or event photographers.

1. Did you have a full time job before taking the plunge (ie did part-time/freelance first for the first few years)?

2. After going full time, have you ever thought about this: if at any time in the future, you decide to stop being full time, would you be able to return to the corporate world and are you able to find a job again? Or do you plan to go down the photography road and maybe look for other jobs in this same industry? (eg studios, bridals etc)

Just wanted to hear experiences on what sort of planning you all did when starting out.
Thank you!
