Meaning, how did you get started in photography and the path that lead you to where you are currently at today?
For example, I started photography years ago just playing around and winning several local and regional photography shows. Was selected to show in some gallery openings and exhibits. Took a break of several years upon out of the blue I got a Rebel XT for Christmas.
The Right Place / Right Time scenario saw me offered a job as a photographer for a travel agency when they chartered their own cruises/vacation escapes. At the time I never expected to make any money from photography so when the aspect of free luxury travel was offered (with a small daily rate paid as well), I couldn't believe my luck.
I did that for going on 4 years next year. Then recently I stumbled (that is the best way to describe it other than "blind luck") into the position of doing event photography for a S. FL magazine. Which again I was surprised to be able to pick up some spare change each week (in addition to all the freebies) for doing something I probably would have done for free anyway. (Yes, I admit my business sense is terrible and I am working on it).
Through these event photography assignments, I have been approached by companies/individuals/etc.. that want to utilize me in other regards and activities. In the last two months I have seen a dramatic increase in assignments/requests as well.
Overall I went from thinking that I would never have a chance to make a dime from this hobby of mine to actually having to turn down requests/assignments.
So.... how has your own journey been and where do you see it going (or hope to be going?)
