There are some things out there you should know about in order to avoid serious mistakes that could ruin your pictures and in fact, ruin your career.
1. “I’m a PRO”
Lot’s of people turn into photography as a hobby. As the hobby is not a cheap thing, a lot of them want to make a profit out of it. But, please. Be realistic about your skills. Having a decent DSLR and some experience set of gear is surely not enough.
This is the photographer that takes pictures, not the camera. The investment is expensive and it goes to a very competitive market where only those skillful, talented and creative will survive. If you start in the business, be frank about that. Present a realistic picture of your current experience and where you are at your photographic journey, especially when you get paid for the assignment.
