I have been a photographer for a few years now.
Before then I just loved taking photo's of flowers and kids and no way would I call myself a photographer. But I am one.
I work full time but over the last 18 months I have been taking photos of strangers, originally people I've been recommended by friends and family and then they recommended me and so on and so forth.
Then I got myself a facebook page and started taking more photos of strangers. At first I didnt charge anything for my time. Just $5 or $10 for the cost of the disc of photos and the postage to get it to them. Then people just started giving me extra money, all unasked for of course.
People started wanting to book me for sessions and well I guess it just felt right.
I don't charge a lot. I'm all about making it affordable to all families, especially young families with mortgages and school fees etc etc
I don't profess to be an amazing photographer but I know I am not a bad one. I've never had a bad word said against anything I have sent and really I have this board and you ladies to thank for that.
So to the big opportunity. Today I have been approached, and have accepted to work(still part time for now) for a children's modelling/casting agency.
I will be the photographer for my entire state (Victoria, Australia)
I feel really excited about it and scared as well. To say that I am also scared stiff is an understatement but I think that if I wasnt good enough for the agency to approach me then they wouldn't have.
So I'd love to know what you think..... am I in over my head?
