How do you become a Professional Photographer?
How do you become a Professional Photographer? I have finished learning for now, got 1 Diaploma in Photography, and someday I want to be a Professional Wedding Photographer. I haven't done a lot of work for money yet. My guess is you need to do a name search, then register it, and then buy a copyright license. What am I missing? Of course if you plan on making over $30,000 a year you need tax account, and charge the costumer aswell. Please also state if you are a proffessional photographer or not. Thanks for answering, I really don't know who else too aks!!!

I am not a professional photographer, but I would check out photo printing places that also do portraits in studio & out.

Being a professional anything just means that you have found someone willing to pay you for doing something for them. It does not mean that you are any good at it. You might try doing it for just your cost or even free just to see if you are any good and that people like your work. Good luck

Sell a picture... You are professional. Untill then, regardless of how good your work is...you remain a photographer, an amateur. It's like writing...Untill you sell your work you may be a writer but selling your work makes you a pro.
