My plan had been for me to look into getting into stock photography sales sometime next spring. But I signed up for the two week smugmug trial and got hooked. There’s a lot to like about the smugmug web site if you’re looking to get online as a photographer (professional or not).
My current system is Minolta Maxxum based, and I’ve had it just about as long as the Maxxum line has been around. In fact I still have my original Maxxum 7000 kicking around.
Sometime soon I’m planning to get a new digital SLR, but I learned to take pictures with my 7000, and I have thousands of slides filed away.
This is of start of Mike Silversides Photography, with some comments about becomming a professional photographer.
Mike Silversides Photography is finally a go. I’ve been thinking about becoming a professional photographer almost as long as I’ve been taking pictures. I was all set to get started earlier this spring. But the unexpected expense of buying a new car, and the suggestion of my wife to come up with a business plan, has really slowed things down. And it probably going to take awhile to really get going, but this is the start.
