I have not created a poll for quite a while. Thought this poll would highlight some misconceptions about how easy it is to start a photography business with a DSLR or pure passion. To start a photography business is easy, to be successful is more than tough. Must have or nice to have?
To be successful, we would need most of the points. The top players have most or all the points, but a start-up has only a couple of strength to start evaluating the possibilities. It's an open poll with multiple options, but pick no more than 3 "must have".
1) Skills, Creative, Know-how, etc.
2) Equipments, Gears, etc.
3) A&P, Marketing, Branding, etc.
5) People Skill (EQ)
6) Business sense, Pricing, Positioning, etc.
7) Network, Contacts, Know-who, etc.
9) Others, pls elaborate
