    Keep the same DSLR and dont upgrade.
    Use kit lens and dont buy new lens.
    Practise with friends and dont join model shoot or course.

    u need to buy new lenses every month???

    you just need a few lenses: a wide, a medium tele, and after that depends on what you like to shoot, a macro, a 50mm prime for portraits, or a super tele if u into birding.

    so maybe 2 lenses for a start, and you add a third or fourth some months later, and you have full battle order.

    well u may need accessories like flash, tripod, and teleconvertor, again depending on what you like to shoot.

    u spend more time than money all in all, like spending time here on clubsnap and participating in polls ...

    it's not expensive if you only spend on what you really needed for this hobby, I think.

    each month not so realistic .... there are 2 types of expenditures: ..... the fixed expense like the cam, lens, etc... and the other is the expenses like developing photos, model shoot fees, etc....
    always the Light, .... always.

    You can save a lot of model fees by taking up self-portraits.

    well if they earn 30k a month, spending 2k a month is peanuts.

    i guess a good photographer is one that will make money from what he shoots... otherwise it is just a pure toy play.

    i had a fren who had a D200 and simple lenses, making an average 4k a month from photoshoots... drawback is no cpf , no medical benefits and frequent overseas travelling. however his family often miss him alot.

    4k a month is about the pay of some engineers....
