I do not understand this. Why would you need to have a job as a photographer if you are a PM in IT? That should pay you quite well.

If you can turn your hobby into a money making venture, why not? Love the pic!

That's fine, quit the PM job and be a photographer.

Maybe he likes doing both.
Maybe he likes having multiple income streams.
Wy do you care how many jobs he has?

Good on you. I'm in the same boat. It's nice not having the pressure to exist off my photography, whilst still making some coin on the side.

this is a neat image. many of us can relate to it! maybe adding a gadget on left side might make for better balance to the composition and help tell the story a bit more?? and the smudge where your shoulder blades meet needs to be cleaned up.

Some of us don't do photography for the money. It's for the love of it. I'd do it for free, but if people are willing to pay for my work, then why not make some money off of it and create a self-sustaining hobby

I'm also a manager in IT. I didn't realize that the two things were mutually exclusive. I guess I'll quit photography.
