Something to keep in mind as you start out...

One thing that has always amazed me is when an extremely talented photographer cannot make any money in the business. The type of photographer that is out there shooting photos that are better than the top professionals. And yet their photos are never seen due to a lack of marketing. This effect works both ways. Some photographers are extremely successful, but take sub par photos. (definitely the most upsetting when you are good and not making money)

If you are trying to become a professional, you have to remember that even though taking an amazing photo was a lot of work, no one will ever see the photo unless you put it in front of them! Placing it on your website is a great way to start, but showing the photo directly to potential clients is probably the only way to sell the shot. The talent is only half the battle!
