Deciding you want to become a pro photographer because you think it will be fun is a little like deciding you want to become a plumber because you like to play with water. Photography, the business of photography, whether you want to acknowledge it or not, is rooted in a skill. It is the skill of taking pictures. I know you’ve taken a couple of pictures that you and your friends think are good. I know your Facebook friends compliment your pictures. Woo hoo. Get the ribbon out and run around the pole.
And be 'perky'... that helps.
