I'd like to say thanks for your replies. I thought the concept was just way too good to be true. Plus I did previously read a few discussions that often started as a subject about something else, but I felt that they didn't square up and really try to hit the important question dead on.
Also I figured that the photographers didn't make the money when I came across a site today that only took a very small percentage per picture but required a membership worth several hundreds of dollars. And that site reminded me of some "job placement agencies" I've heard about and how if you pay them hundreds, they'll let you apply for the job...
And I know BillDrew is right about how easy it would be, to turn a hobby into a dull job.
So I'll just dabble with the photos, & thanks again.
