Wel­come to the Au­gust 2017 is­sue of Dig­i­tal Camera

Digital Camera World - - CONTENTS -

IT’s a dream of many en­thu­si­ast pho­tog­ra­phers to ditch the day job and make a liv­ing out of their

camera. It’s not easy. I know this first-hand: I was a pro for many years be­fore work­ing on mag­a­zines. At times it was ut­terly re­ward­ing; at oth­ers it was pretty hum­drum. So it’s im­por­tant to think care­fully about what you re­ally want be­fore tak­ing the leap and mak­ing a com­plete ca­reer change.

There are plenty of ways to get started with­out div­ing in at the deep end – or maybe you just want make a bit of cash on the side to fuel your ex­pen­sive hobby. Ei­ther way, our cover story will get you started, as we take you on a whis­tle-stop tour of some great ways to make a bit of cash with your camera – from events and wed­dings to shoot­ing for stock and sell­ing fine-art prints.

With the gen­er­ous help of Phot­tix (and its team of pros), this month’s Shootout in an aban­doned man­sion in Liver­pool saw me join­ing read­ers Si­mon and Liriya. The re­sults are awe­some! See page 68.
