Well, I'm sure you have a passion for photography and that's why you are reading this article.

If you enjoy photographing events and love to take pictures of people have you ever considered photography as a career or even just a means to making some money on the side to pay for your hobby?

Probably the hardest part is getting started. These days it's probably easier than it has ever been to get into photography as a profession. What with the introduction of digital photography, taking photographs has become a lot easier, sorting and presenting the photographs is also much cheaper and can be made to look a lot more professional, as you don't have to print any photographs that you are not going to sell, and all your presentation can be done as a CD slide show. Probably the best way to start is to take portraits to get a bit of experience, why not try a bit of event photography to help you to get used to working fast.
