Photography Business

I am a "weekend" photographer. I have a day job and can only devote time to focus on my business on the weekends. I am trying to break into stock photography as well as sell fine art on a website I am developing. I am very passionate about it and want to be a sucess. I know it will take a great deal of time. Do you have any advice for me as a budding pro?

Jerry Frazier   Becareful with the stock stuff. Go talk to some stock photographers. Look up your local PPA at PPA.ORG and go talk to them as well. It's important that you understand how to license your work. I'm not saying you don't know how, I'm just saying that the stock agencies prey on people who are not saavy.

good luck in your endeavour.
