    Do you have any experience? You could start by shooting for friend's events to get experience/ build a portfolio. That's what some of my friends do.

    A good start is to learn how to read forums and LOOK. we have an entire section called "The Photo Biz" which is packed with advice.

    Independent thinking and being able to think without needing spoonfeeding will help you a lot in your potential career.

    You can start by making sure your skills are up to mark. Then shoot some events open to public for practice. Make sure you can deliver, before even considering charging for it.
