What is the best way to boost my photography business?

I don't have a studio. My photo business is a second job to me, because I don't make enough money with that alone. This year has been rough financially for me, and I've only had 5 jobs (mostly weddings). I only had 1 sport job, and I was told by one parent it was because gas prices were so high... most parents didn't want sport pictures from a professional. Gas prices have dropped yet I have not received any calls. Should I give up my business?

Probably lack of "marketing strategy".......try to market yourselves. You should be aggressive especially with your other competitors......Present yourself "professionally", prepare an "excellent portfolio", bring "businesscard" all the time, if you can built a website - its a plus!
