I have busted my butt for 3 years learning EVERYTHING there is to know about photography and getting the camera and lenses that I need to do this for a living! YES!! It takes YEARS to learn about what to do with photography and the business side!
Also, if you are doing it "under the table" and the IRS finds out that you are not filing taxes then WOW!! You're screwed!! Also, printing photos for your "clients" at Walmart or any of those places is CRAP! Yes, I have a business, yes, I have a business license. Yes, I have a tax ID #! Yes, I'm legit!
sorry....didn't mean to fly off the handle...I have just seen too many moms just get a consumer grade DSLR and think they can "open a business" the next day! Not true!
If you would LOVE to learn how to take the right steps to doing photography for a living, then go join Photomoms here on CM. TONS of info and a lot of professional photographers are there to answer questions and point you in the right direction!
ok I'm done! :)
