Many amateur photographers want their hobby to be a profession. Whether on a part time or a full time basis, to the photographer who has not gone pro yet, there seems to be nothing better than doing something you love for money. They’re absolutely right.
Let’s get down to business then.
Beyond being proficient in the craft of photography, which many amateurs already are, you’ve got to start to think of your photography as a business.
As a photographer, you’re business is really about your copyright or intellectual property.
One of the first things you should do when going pro is to educate yourself about your copyright and how to register the copyright to your work.
This is where many photographers procrastinate. Don’t!!
