    After working 15+ hour days for a 2-week business trip to Philadelphia, I came back to a handful of messages from people wanting to book shoots, figure prices, etc.

    It was at this point that I realized - for my own good, photography should stay a hobby.

    I rebelled, only called back those that I knew, and bought something that won't ever have job requirements.

    Depends on how good you get. I bet photography didn't start out with job requirements. :mrgreen: Enjoy.

    Photography is a tough racket. Glad you figured that out before too much damage was inflicted. PM me if you are selling any photo gear.

    haha no way, not selling the gear, just relaxing a little and letting photography get back to the fun. The past month was a good break away from it, and I am thrilled about a couple upcoming shoots.

    I know exactly what you mean. My month of March is absolutely nuts (7 days a week minimum 16 hours a day, and most more than that from March 1 to April 7).

    I had a plan to slowly go pro with the photography over the course of 2009 but now I am seriously thinking things over. First off, there is no possible way the income could even touch 10% of what I am doing with my business... and it is VERY true that once your hobby turns pro, a lot of the pleasure disappears.
