I choose neither the path of the Freelancer nor the Signature Photographer. Money or fame is not my motivation. I'm more of a hobbyist. I take pictures as my chosen form of artistic expression (mainly because I can't sculpt, paint, or draw with s***). While the fortune or renown that may stem from a full-blown or side-bar career in photography sounds appealing, I still think it's nice to get some sort of laudatory notice once in while.

not too shabby - he tells it like it is and his advice is sound.
