Hello All,

Just wondering how many people on this forum have photography as their profession, be it as a photographer, editor etc. The reason I am bringing this up, is I became curious into how many people actually work in the business of photography. So please mention your occupation here. If your job is photography please mention what aspect of photography and If your occupation is others please state what the occupation is.

Thanks everyone in advance for your participation, cheers!!

I am a writer and photographer since I finished University in 2004.

Photography is business to business food, other product & architecture.

Currently I do more writing, will change again as soon as my book is published.

My old but current homepage: Fotokontext: Der Fisch muss dem Angler schmecken --- will be renewed as soon as my book is finished.

Part time photographer on the side. My photography is used to pay for itself and fund the occasional vacation.

By day I work two jobs as a Paramedic.

You can kontakt him thru his site... or just telefon Gary.

Or just look thru the wonderful food photography... broccoli, halibut, and some Italian cake thingy that looks quite tasty.

As far as the topic, if you search on here you could probably find previous discussions on this... it's been a sideline for me.

Just a hobbyist. I do sell some prints occasionally, but most people want them for free.

Sometimes I get photography job opportunities, but again, people want my services for free.

I would like to go professional someday, but having poor people skills and anxiety issues just makes it really hard for me, but its still something I'm willing to try.

I'm a professional photographer and filmmaker. I love the job so much, that I never specialized. Beside the shots I get paid for, I still run out into the garden to shoot dew on the grass early morning. Just recently I started a youtube channel for photography beginners to help people new to photography enjoy it as much as I do.

I've worked in photo labs since 1985, currently I work at Schiller's Camera in St. Louis, MO as lab tech and retouch artist. Also I have a black-n-white lab set up in my home doing BW film development/prints as an "out lab" for Schiller's.
