    Goodluck Jeff I'm sure you will get a heap of traffic through the studio now! Sorry to hear about the FT job, i think everything is a bit sketchy in that area since a certain change...

    I was up in your "old" office breifly a couple of weeks back too for work...
    Cheers, Brad

    best of luck.....maybe this is exactly what was needed.....as long as the bills are paid and there is food, that is ALL you really need.....happiness is more important in the long run.

    Best of luck mate. Losing a FT job can never be easy, but as you were somewhat prepared, you are prob better off than would have been.

    Credit to you for trying to make photography a FT gig, I could never bring myself to attempt it as I don't have the talent, and I like the security of knowing where my next $$ are coming from.

    Get that wedding brochure out asap now mate...

    Thanks guys for the positive support - Haven't been here much lately as i just haven't had the time.
    One thing i have been doing over the last 2 years which i should share - Not exactly related to the business is i have been paying to much of my bills, water electricity gas etc.
    So for the next 4-6 months i shouldn't have a bill - makes life just a little bit easier.
    Just a tip for those also contemplating the jump...

    All the very best Jeff, seems you have been planning to head this way for a while, and preparing as well (the bills payments), you are starting with that advantage of knowing what you are going into and with a realistic approach, you should thrive and succeed. Keep us in the loop.

    Well done Jeff.

    I'm stoked to see that someone has put some serious planning into their photography venture.
