Do you have what it takes to be a Pro Photog?
Interesting, is it yours?
Yes to #s 6 & 15, No to the rest
Nope. I found the site via digg. This article was getting many hits.
Ahh, that place for Generous photographers. LOL
A lot of pros don't have what it takes to be a Pro Photographer. It depends of the marketplace, the competition or the lack of both. There are also considerable differences between pros. The expectations related to journalistic or "publishable" photography are different than those for portraits or wedding photography. Sports photography is considerably different from product photography. Scenic photography is very different from street photography. Selling photos to the public is different from selling them to companies, businesses, publishing houses, newspapers, magazines etc. and so are the expectations for technical and compositional quality.
So contrary to the article, pros in different areas require different skills in photography, business, and the social/people area and different levels of skills as well.
