If you absolutely love photography, you can start your own business. You can start part time on the side while you still do a full time job elsewhere. Once your business picks up and you are earning as much as your full time job, then you can completely focus on your photography business. Instead of working in a photography job, doing business has higher potential to earn money and provides you with more satisfaction. You can take pictures for people during their wedding photo shoots. You can charge for $1000 or $1500 per session of photo shoots in your studio or at the wedding venue. If you are good at video shooting as well, there you can earn further $2000 per night for wedding reception night. Word of mouth is very important. If a client likes your work, they will likely recommend you to other people and this way your popularity will spread quickly.
