When you start dreaming about photography as a career, you have to make up their minds whether it should be full-time commercial photography, or part-time. If you go all the way, it's a good idea to make sure you have built up a clientele in either portrait photography, fashion photography, advertising photography or other forms of personal or professional tasks.
When you are amateur photographer and you love to make pictures, you have to ask yourself the question, can provide the same creative pictures every day? Can deliver on a deadline? Would you make any kind of commercial images? Not all customers will have the kind of images you are passionate about, can you still deliver the same quality?
Amateur photographer is free of such speculations. He or she can shoot when it fits into the time, desire and location, etc. In contrast, the professional photographer, MUST deliver every day, otherwise customers will look elsewhere for a better product.
It is therefore important to do careful thought before venturing into the commercial photography. It is simply not all that has been created to mass produce commercial images to order every day. For such is the commercial professional photographer's daily life in Denmark today.
