No, photography won't make me wealthy. But rich, that's another matter...

My only reason for having a job is to finance my hobbies. Having a hobby turn job would be really, really sad.

Most of the commercial photographers I know envy me the liberty to take only pictures I like, and spend as long as I like doing it. At least one of them has converted to digital for professional work, and is using his old LF camera for "relearning the joy of photography" (quote)!
