so since a few years ago when deviantart was bubbling with life, i was just wondering: how many of you are now living off photography, how many of you are working towards the dream of being a full time photographer, who just does it for a hobby and i guess the silence will let me know who doesn't go on da anymore :)

in the time i've been gone i've managed to create my dream of being a full time photographer come true. i live on my own with my boyfriend dan and my life in now a beautiful cycle of shooting and editing.

well, I think I'm kinda weird... I love photography, I will always take photos etc., but I don't wanna go to college to learn photography and then become a professional photographer. I've always wanted to be a surgeon. And even though I love photography and it's my biggest passion, it still haven't changed anything. Every day, I feel like I wanna be a surgeon even more than I wanted it the day before :)

My dream is to become a full time photographer after college. Something that just started out as a hobby now brings me more and more joy and I really can't think of what else I would do with my life if not photography. I have been feeling rather frustrated with myself of late, wanting to grow and learn faster! But I'm trying to not be so hard on my self and know that growth takes time. I will achieve my dream some day.

I hope to one day be a part-time to full-time photographer, depending on the part of the year. Right now I sometimes go weeks without shooting. I want to change that.

i used to do that too. perhaps you could try a 52 week project? just to keep you motivated and so you don't fall behind on shooting. once you get into the habit of taking photos all the time, it's such a great feeling! and i hope you get to your goal <3

Well I'm primarily a portrait photographer. The problem isn't that I can't find the motivation to take pictures, it's that I can never find many willing models to participate. But I take pictures when I can.

Photography is simply a hobby of mine - I sporadically earn some extra spending cash if I shoot events, but my true love for it lies within the art of it. I'm happy for it to be a hobby as I'm quite focussed on progressing my career in education.

I've been following you for a couple of years now and I'm glad to see that you were able to turn it into something fulltime :)

I'm working as an associate lecturer at a university... and I'll be starting my PhD within a couple of years :) But I'll always love my photography! :heart:
