Thread: Who's Day Job is Photography?

    Re: Who's Day Job is Photography?

    I am a translator too, but a couple of years ago I decided I needed to do something outdoors. I got into pinhole cameras, which led me to LF photography and this, in turn, led me to architectural photography. About 25% of my current income is photography related.

    Like you Kirk, this is my day, night and weekend job. I shoot architecture commercially and I'm working at selling my prints now as well. Sure, I'm not floating in extra cash, but I'm doing what I love.

    Hi
    It was in the past for 3 years but I really started to hate to work for others, so I stopped bevor it was to late.
    Now its about 5-10% of my job and the rest I do other things, but in my freetime I'm almost do only my own photography!
    Cheers Armin

    We're supposed to have a day job!?

    I knew there was a reason I retired.

    High speed motion picture photography of our nuclear stockpile in action. Does that count. It's a sucky job but somebody's got to do it. When it's time for personal work, perhaps that's why I choose 1 image / 360 seconds instead of thousands of images at 360 frames per second. All the same principles apply to both endeavors.

    Gordon…. I had my own Architectural practice for 14 years. I found that if I worked 25 hours a day I only had to work 8 days a week.

    For the last 27 years I have worked for a large Design-Build firm as a Designer/Project Architect. I also do LF Black & White landscape photography which I market through a couple of galleries and 5 to 10 Art Fairs each year. Over the years I have done Architectural Photography for the D/B company and for the last three years that is all I have done. So now, my day job is photography and so is my hobby.

    It is a personal passion due to the fact I am retired(ded) from aviation accident investigations. However, I live photography 24/7. Occasionally a person in need chooses me for a documentary assignment/project. Then, I am in hog heaven.

    I'm a custom fine art printer and I use a lot of photography skills in this endeavor.
