I've worked in IT for 26 years and am currently a Project Manager for one of the largest IT companies. About 4 years ago I anticipated my job possibly ending and we took a run at starting a full time photography business doing sports and school photography. About a year into it things shifted at my day job and got more solid and more fun... so I had to eventually make a decision. I am making way too much money in IT to give that up for photography right now, what with 4 kids in private school/college and a stay at home wife. So the photography is a good part time income now. I also developed a big forum similar to POTN (different subject) and do some web development and web hosting which generates additional income too... so I am probably 90% IT, 10% photography at this point, but am still thinking of shifting to photog when and if my day job ever goes away.

Self employed for 20 yrs (after being a portrait & product photographer for 5 yrs and camera store mgr for another 4 yrs). .. Own 2 companies - Under one company name are beauty products (my graphics) plus bas-relief tiles, engraved glass & horse sport event photography. .. and the other company (equineelite.com) - our 'meat & potatoes' -provides great skin care products for dogs & horses to veterinarians, distributors, tack stores and consumers. (the website needs an upgrade.. but I've been busy)

Last spring when I showed up to visit my riding buddies at the first cutting (a horse sport), they roped me into being the photographer for the season. (I use to show cutting horses). .. same w/the two other cutting clubs ... so it's been a busy season.. and I've almost got my new equipment paid off w/photo income. (yay!). I also sculpt & am writing a book (which is why I got back into photography after a long break) ... anyway, photography is used for work but is also something I enjoy.

4th year medical student, headed to surgery in '09. At which point photography will be put in the back seat... :( Hobbyist photographer though. Some jobs here and there; a few weddings, some senior portraits, some sports, but mostly just for fun.

I'm an account manager / sales exec for a solutions company supporting several key major accounts within North America from 9-5. After the daily grind I operate a photography business on the side - I'm not busy enough to go full-time mainly because my day job doesn't allow me enough time to take on the business needed.
