I offered our clients calendar shoots last year so that they could have a calendar for this year with just photos of their dogs. Since then, I've had numerous people ask me if I'm still doing photography.

Thank you so much!
Awesome! I think that doing pet photography for people can also open the door to doing human photography. If you do a shoot for someone and they love the photos of their dogs (which they will- your photography is AWESOME!), they'll probably want you to do shoots of their children, family shots for holiday cards, graduation photos, etc, etc.

I think you're also in an ideal area for photography- especially pet photography!

Take your boss up on that offer! If photography is the route you want to go, I think you'll be able to take it far!

I guess I have a good compromise... I get to work from home 2 days a week and they are generally my more productive days. I work in a IT support role and when you are the "E-Mail and File Server guy", you tend to get a lot of 'drive-bys'. When I am at home, it is a lot easier to just ignore the IM's. LOL

Also, I have 100 mile (round trip) commute, so 2 x days at home really helps with the fuel costs. You want city money, you have to go to the city. No way I want to live any closer though. I don't know how people can actually LIVE there. LOL

Amber... Be well. Good luck.

I'm going to harangue you to get back to your photography, and not just pets. You do phenomenal work with people too. Those modeling shots you did of your friends were . . . not just beautiful, they were editorial, and that's more difficult than "pretty."

You have a great eye for the shot.
