    Studio? Sports? PJ? Weddings?

    And by hard, I mean to produce real serious work...not just some snapshot.

    I would say weddings, or any commercial fashion/lifestyle work.

    Probably nature.

    You see a lot more good wedding photographers than nature photographers. This may be because weddings pay a lot more, but I still think stunning nature photos are more difficult to produce than stunning wedding photos.

    on a technical and liability side, weddings, though automotive can be a bitch to properly light
    on a frustrating side, kids
    on a patience side, wildlife

    depends really on the kid.. I've had good experiences, and bad ones.... Shooting posed shots = pain in the ass, shooting for the moment = fun.

    pornography.

    I can't imagine having to sit thru all those shoots with hot ass naked women all around you.

    I mean, the boner, how do I hide my massive erection?

    I think nature takes WAY TOO MUCH patience, I couldn't deal with
    Kids would be frustrating
    Hockey can be hard as well, as far as sports go

    I think a bigger problem would be cleaning ejaculate off your camera and photographing a dog having sex with a woman having sex with another woman having sex with a half-man-half-woman.

    any photography that requires you to get "that" shot at "that" moment.

    shooting pornography would be no more difficult than any other not so staged shoot, you set the lighting and focus in capturing the moment, the subject isn't supposed to matter

    Studio Commercial.

    Editorials with close deadline.

    Studio is especially doing my head in at the moment, like learning all over again.

    Concerts..

    No light and or horrid lighting.

    limited time to shoot.... usually not allowed to use flash...

    have to battle surroundings i.e. flying objects, crowd surfers, moshing kids, security, band members....

    no, not sports. im talking about shoots like weddings, meet & greets, special appearances, awards ceremonies, etc., where you don't have the chance to get "that" shot again.
