I've always had a passion for photography but never been in a financial position to buy a SLR camera, photo editing software and attend a photography course.
It's something I really want to do so I've decided to sell some my stuff that I don't use any more to try and get some money together but I don't think it would be enough to buy everything at once.
I might buy the camera first and join a local camera club. I'm going to offer free shoots to my family and friends to build up some experience too while I save for a proper course.
Do you think this is a good idea? Ideally I'd love to do babies and kids photography. Do you think it would be fair to charge for photo shoots while I am attending school or should I wait til I finish the course before charging?
I don't really know where I should start. If anyone has started their own photography business, I'd love to read about your experiences.
