Hello all, I'm new here. Wanted to ask your advice. I am a keen digital photographer, and recently more and more friends, family and others (school playgroup for instance!) have been asking me to shoot portraits. It's got me wondering whether I could perhaps start a small business doing this in my local area. Bear in mind this a a very tentative foray! The thing is, right now i have just a Canon Powershot G9 (latest), which although is fantastic, is not a big s****y pro digital SLR! I wonder if it would be considered acceptable to start with this, maybe build up slowly, start buying second-hand lights/ backdrops etc as and when. Would I be a laughing stock with my little G9? should i start saving and upgrade? EDIT - why on earth did the censor edit that word - its wasnt swearing! Just shiny, maybe i mis-spelt!
