glad to see younger shooters as well
i just turned 18 and have been shooting for a few years and have made quite a bit recently. i shoot live music and festivals which is a bit different than most but the moneys good and it's fun. social networking is your best friend, regardless of what you're shooting. if you start now, you could probably set yourself up pretty nicely later in your career. honestly with the quality of your work, don't expect to make any real money anytime soon. all i can suggest is keep learning, shoot for free as much as possible (experience is the most important thing to you right now), and just branch out to as many people as possible.
