    Hello,
    I always wanted to become a photographer and I feel if I dont start now, it wont ever happen.

    I am thinking of doing glamour and maybe xxx shoots and open a membership website.

    I am also thinking of setting up my own studio (instead of renting every time), so guys if you have ideas of setting up a studio, pictures, advice, experience, the Do's and Dont's, please help me.#

    What do you guys think of the overall idea, do you think it can earn me enough money?

    Go to work for someone who already does, and has all of that. You will be getting paid to learn what you need.

    Huh, I am a newbie.
    I will be doing a course in Photoshop, been trying to look for online courses.
    Yeah the equipment gonna be expensive, but I am guessing I can get a return on investment after 1 year only. Depends how and where I market the website which I guess gonna be expensive also to make.
    The place gonna be one floor in my house.

    Since you are a good photographer i would also suggest you trying the stock photography, it can make you some decent reccuring money.

    What's the membership website for? I see plenty of struggling photographers out there. Don't think it's going to be easy. You will need more than just glamor shots to keep your business running.

    a studio will cost a LOT depending on where you are.. keep in mind that studios. need to be big for all the lights sets screens etc. I know someone in Toronto who has one and it costs roughly 3k per month. then you also need to deal with people who cancel on you or sometimes just don't come AMD you never hear from again.

    just rent a castle by the month. They are great locations. There are organisations in Europe that are in desperate need for tenants of such big building.s You pay a hundred bucks a month and can live there until they find a buyer. You will need to take care of minor maintenance work and keep it in good condition in return.

    If you would read it carefully you would see the answer to that is yes, i still earn moeny from that. All the tips are shared there,
    i did not invent the wheel. I just did it and saw it makes money but dont just upload it, i did it differently and also customized
    the photos.

    Start small, try it out first, you can hire glamour, softcore models for pretty cheap. Then try selling it, as long as you are not doing it to put food on the table and with no pressure, you are OK. Then after a while you will see if that is something you are really good at. Keep in mind there is a lot of competition in the adult content market, but if you are talented, then the sky's the limit...

    You can go on stocks and sell your pics there, try to grow some client base and promote your own services at your website
