Freelance Conundrums

I've recently quit my steady job at Mediafax, after working for them for about four years. It's been great for what it was, I am grateful for the confidence they have always shown me and I am positive that it still is the best place to be in, for a news photographer, in this country.

Nevertheless, I felt it was time to move on. I hope to stray a little bit from news photography and devote more time to working on stories and perhaps improving the way I make portraits. This freedom I now enjoy does not come without a price, of course. Freelancing - some down-to-earth friends call it unemployment - brings up a challenging conundrum: how do you shoot what you like and at the same time keep paying your bills on time? Hopefully the answer to this question will not prove to be too painful.

Good luck man. I am sure there will be a nice long line asking for your photographic services in no time.
