    I started out my career as a studio photographer/cinematographer working for a company that made training films/slides for pilots. I was also a newspaper photographer for a few years before going into television production.

    The pay wasn't bad, but I wasn't going to get rich either. The guys who own their own studios can make a pretty decent living but the competition for business is always present and getting new clients takes a lot of the photographers time.

    The main reason to get into photography as a career is because you love it. I've never regretted my decision.
