I'm giving up my hobby if trying to be a photographer, there it too much competition out there and i cant compare so im giving it up and trying something else. If anyone wants a camera let me know mine is going.
Just a thought that you only just started doing it for less than year?
It took me nearly 2 years to get my business to where I am today with Horsey Happy Snaps Photographics, believe me it's not easy but you need to get out there and promote yourself. That is what I did, took 2 years for people to notice me and comment my photography work!
Forgot to add something.....I am hearing impaired, meaning I am totally deaf...smash or CMSporthorse or KC QH can vouch for me that even smashie could understand me sometimes but requiring me to have pen and paper to write but CMSporthorse and KC could understood me the whole time, so didn't need pen and paper to write. So I am guessing some people just understand me completely and others can't.
For me to get into photography wasn't easy to begin with but I was determined and plugged away for nearly two years without giving up even my hubby thought it won't last, well I proved my hubby wrong. My photography has become successful and people knows I am deaf and gets in contact with me via emails to get me out for photos at their events.
So please don't say it's too hard..especially I am deaf, you can hear and you can talk and you can get out and say hello without any problems...as people who heard me talking would probably run a mile, yes it has happen, it did not affect me but that is their problem not me.
There was one lady in particular wanted a photographer to photograph her dressage and she didn't want me but other photographer (there were 2 photographers at event). I was just being polite to her and say that's fine....good luck! Then what happened was she tracked down to find me via email and said would like to order ALL the photos that I took...and I made $160 out of her. I think she felt bad that she just practically wiped me and was wanting other photographer LOL....it shows that some people need to stop and think before saying things like that.
And again please stop complaining about having no fuel or no money or whatever you always have said... stop belittling yourself.
Have a good Christmas and stay safe into 2010.
SVA666, anything worth doing is not easy so don't give up if you have the talent.
If people gave up when times were a little difficult there would be no:
