I need some advice on what I can to do move closer to my goal of becoming a wedding photographer. I have asked on several forums what is the best way to go about this is to, and the answer is always to become an assistant or second shooter, which I would love to do. So I have been looking regularly for professionals looking for an assistant, but it seems as though no one is looking for one. I do practice as much as I can, but being a stay at home dad with 2 kids, while also trying to finish up a degree in psychology, and only having one car (which my wife takes to work) doesn't leave me as much time as i woudl like. I actually did shoot 2 weddings before. The first i was about 10, and I was just doing it for fun. Many of my pictures were better than the actual photographers. The second I was 16 and I actually was the photographer. So what can I do? Should I call photographers and offer to work for free? Should I simply read and practice on my own until I see a photographer who is hiring? Should I get comfortable enough with my skills and try to get a wedding to shoot?
