    I shoot for my RC unofficially and you'll be surprised how much they appreciate it. They've got no budget so don't expect payment for your time. Maybe they'll pay for the printing but that's abt it. As for CCs, they would have the money to pay, but usually they already have prior arrangement with pro photogs.

    Do ask them... you'll be surprised... they might hang on to you dearly!
    Agreed with Phillip, it so easy to get in, just need to open you month, but don't bother to ask for money, cos they don't have budget for that, and they will keep you very busy all the weekends.

    Only events with MP or minister as GOH, than they will have budget for photography, and again, mostly will look for professionals.

    start by camping outside bridal shops? distributing flyers?

    I think age does matter. If you want to make a business/income/etc you need to propose a contract that both you and the client must agree.. contract requires a legal age of 21 i suppose? I'm not too sure becos i never had a problem with age..

    no way camping outside, but do it by start to shoot for frens, and if you are doing good, then by words of mouth, your frens will intro you to their frens and frens ... so on... right???

    anyone agree?

    Some bridal shop desperate for customers more the photographers do, camp outside the bridal shop no use one. More over the shops have regular photographers to take their assignments, if you only one man show nobody will entertain you.

    The best way to start is to learn from other photographers, find someone be your mentor.

    Shoot wedding is not as easy as many people think, the photographer must know all the basic about photography, and understand the wedding customs and rituals, if not it will like the blind (photographer) leading the blind (wedding couple).
