Of course! Do you have a deviantArt account? It’s one of the biggest art sites on the web. It’s a place where you can store your photos and get other people to critique them. :)) I’m a protographer ( High school ) and I hope to be a successful photographer one day. Don’t give up, go for it! :]]

    Well of course you can be succesful, but you have to be good. I dont want to burst your bubble, and im not saying this is true in your case, but there are HEAPS of teenage photographers right now who think they are good and that they will make pro phootgraphers when they are older, when pretty much all they do is point and click. I am not saying this is the cafe for you, but keep it in mind. PErhaps create a deviant art of Flickr account and upload some images and compare them with some pro wildlife photographers?!
    Good luck!

    Show us your photos and then we can decided whether you are gonna be successful at it. (The fact that you have been doing it for 3-4 years doesn’t mean you are good at it. I’ve been singing my whole life and do it terrible!)

    The people that can truly answer this question are the buyers. BTW you should get some marketing classes, business admin courses. And a lot of very sucessful wildlife photographers have other income so marry well or don;t quit your day job until you are very well established.
