Hi all, I am at the very beginning stages of getting into photography, a complete beginner. And, I wanted to get some advice from the forum. Questions: If I am considering pursuing digital photography as a hobby and eventually a career (weddings, portraits, etc...) 1. What would be a reasonable timeframe in which I could expect to go pro? 2. What should my minimum weekly time commitment be to learning photography? 3. What should I expect to invest as far as money before being able to go pro? 4. Is it a necessity to attend formal photography school? Or, home study course? Is there a home study course you would recommend? 5. What is the minimum equipment I should invest in to get started learning? Thank you all so much!
