First, I'm surprised I didn't see this when you originally posted it. Your shots are excellent, limited space or not.
I then read further and see you've stopped doing it for lack of "fun."
I totally understand that. A few years back I decided to try event photography, weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs. I shot a few, perhaps 3 or 4, and I quickly realized my very FUN hobby just turned into work and I no longer enjoyed it. Yeah, the last bar mitzvah I did for a friend was nice when she handed me 1500 cash, but my back hurt from standing all day, and it became a job. I never did it again and the fun part of the hobby returned. I haven't looked back. Thankfully, I don't need photography to earn a living, because it's a tough living, that's for sure.
They required 7-10 full production quality published editorials, and wanted me to bring clients (magazines) with me.
Everything I did was free/trade. To arrange pro quality hair, makeup, wardrobe, location scout, etc... all via MM, lol. It was just too much for me working full time.
The only thing I ever got published was this: http://kentonmagazine.com …n_editorials/about-a-boy/
That hardly counts as its only an online mag... plus it was easy as it was all arranged by me being it was a male model. Female shoots require a full team.
like i said, it just stopped being fun...
