Lorenzo,
Congradulations on the transition to working pro.
Your article is well written, and should be presented to some photography magazines for possible publication.

Mark

Hi Lorenzo,
I am both inspired and enthused about your document which I have just read. I have a plan for my evolving future as a photographer, and over the weekend I am going to make some changes to that plan, from reading your document. Thank you personally from me.
Darren

Lorenzo, there is something quite familiar about much of your article! I think it is the working long and hard for little to nothing and your emphasis on networking rather than technique to become successful. I would add that one should be utterly and totally reliable ... there is little in this hodge-podge world that is more respected by employers and clients because it is now such a rare quality.

Thanks for posting this.

This is very useful. I found it in a search of the forum as I am looking into my options for landscape photography in my area ... not fully sure where to start but I did get a reach from a local cafe manager ... maybe I will post more questions later but for now I am just researching!
