Photography: How to Turn a Hobby into a Business

If you take pictures for a while, learning new things and improving your skills, there is a chance that during this time you have received a couple of orders or at least taken photos for someone. If so, you probably thought about starting your own business. Photography has been my hobby for a lifetime, but over the past 10 years my passion for it has returned with renewed vigor and for the fifth year now I have been professionally engaged in portrait shooting. If you read my other articles, you know that I have a full-time job that is not related to photography, so it can be difficult to combine them. In this article, I want to shed light on how to turn your hobby into a business that you love.

The first thing I want you to think about is WHY you want to start a business. To help people, spend more time with family, follow their creative aspirations ...? If you clearly understand the reasons why you plan to do photography on a business basis, this will help make the right decisions in a difficult situation. For example, if you plan business on photography in order to earn more money and have the opportunity to go on an annual vacation with your family, this will be your WHY. When you have a choice, take time to shoot or spend an evening with friends, knowing your WHY will simplify decision making. If you want to do this business in order to spend more time with your family on the weekend when everyone is at home, but at the same time planning to be a wedding photographer, a conflict may arise here. I hope you see how a clear understanding of WHY you are going to do this will help set priorities and make decisions for development. This is a key factor that determines whether photography will become a business that will be fun.

Starting a business is not easy and the last thing you would like to face is to turn your favorite hobby into a business that you hate. It is absolutely possible to maintain your love for this occupation even after you begin to engage in it on a professional basis, but in this regard, you need to be very deliberate.

Arkansas Privacy bill vetoed by Governor Asa Hutchinson

Earlier it was reported that the lawmakers of Arkansas had passed a privacy bill which might probably kill street photography by needing (in most of the cases) that photographers have written permission from strangers they click pictures of. Photographers who would not get that might get sued by their ‘subjects.’

The world of photography was in a real uproar regarding the bill and they worked very hard to get it vetoed by the last date at the end of their day. Well, there are some great news indeed, because the bill reportedly has been vetoed Governor Asa Hutchinson.

Hutchinson, in a letter to the Arkansas Senate, explained why he vetoed the bill – the “Personal Rights Protection Act.” He told that he has done this in its present form, the bill is vague, overbroad and would have the effect of restricting free speech. He added that he believes that the absence of a clear exemption for expressive works will result in unnecessary litigation in Arkansas courts and would suppress Arkansans who engage in artistic expression from photography to art work.
