    What's your day job? What do you guys do for a living that affords you this hobby? I see a lot of you posting throughout the day, so I'm assuming a good many of you have desk jobs or maybe you're still in school/college?

    IT, programmer analyst here.

    My day job is managing an automotive repair shop for a big chain.

    Trying to make this photography business off the ground and stable so my wife and I can do weddings as a family business... and for those who don't know, my wife does wedding stationary, sometimes planning, and event stationary.
