Default Hobby or Profession?

Is photography your hobby or your profession? If it is your hobby, what do you do will all your pictures?

I forgot to post what I do with mine.

Photography is a hobby for me. I decorate my apartment with my pictures. I also give them away as gifts. Hopefully one day I'll be able to sell. I store them on an extra hard drive and CD's.

Hobby but am starting to make a little money at it. I have done shoots for people out at parks, etc. for $40/hr with the understanding that they will get the best unedited images from the sessin on a CD and that any prints are their responsibility.

Hobby with an eye towards selling at some point in the distant future.

Right now they go on to multiple hard disks and occasionally to CD. Should do that more often.

I don't have a good enough printer and I'm too lazy to send them off to be printed. I do print some for close friends and family, but not often.

Hobby. I have 2x 30 GBs HDDs. I spread my pictures out on both, since I have about 30 GBs ( :shock: ) worth of pictures (Most in TIFF, that's why).


I hope to have a part-time job soon as a photographer however.

Profession right now. I am working for my dad - he has been a photographer for 30 years and has owned a studio for 12. I've worked for him on and off over the years doing sales and ordering and cashiering, but I have been a full-time photographer for a year now. Even done a few weddings. All that's about to change though. I'm leaving for the Air Force in a month.

Logan,

Good luck with the Air Force. You'll be in our thoughts.
