Well, lets look at the current "famous" photographers....pick a name...and I bet you they are not rich, they might be well off, but certainly not rich. If we count the number of years they have been at it, etc...well anybody can see that becoming a photographer is not going to be the same as winning the lottery.

As the saying goes, pick something you like to do and you will never have to work a day in your life. Somewhat true, I think it should say pick something you like and are talented...

If you are talented eventually you will be rewarded, but the the most important part is that the "doing" itself has its own reward.

So, nope never hope to get rich....but I am happy now...it is more than I could say when I was making lots of money and was miserable.....
