Question by green27: How can I start making my photography a career?
I am extremely passionate about photography, and I have been told many times that I should sell some of my pieces.
Any ideas on how to get that started?

Hello, you could start off by going to your local community college or technical college and ask them to help you with setting up a business plan and give you referrences to talking to others in your choice of career you are looking into. That is one suggestion. You may also decide to take a few business classes or photography courses.
Call others, but not to close to your area, with the same type of business you are considering and ask them if you can set up an appointment to chat with them your possiblities and how they got started. Take a list of questions with you and that will help you stay on task.
Well, it would me .
Most people like to know why you chose them it might also be helpful if you can say something nice about their business.
We had to do this in Graphic and Web design classes. It was really rewarding and helpful I am sure it will be with photography also. By the way I love photography too.
You can download free watermark software online or buy a watermark software.
If you do put things in a portfolio online make sure you watermark them so others can not steal your work. Read about copyright and protect yourself.
I was not sure were your location was so could not suggest any college. Just check any close to home I am sure they will direct you to someone that can help. I hope I have helped in someway. Best of luck to you. And have fun!! 🙂
