I have to agree - I'm a hobbyist, doing work for my family and touching up my own photographic exploits. At 35 I decided to return to college and get a degree in Photography and digital imaging, hoping the piece of paper might make it easier to break into the business. I'm also planning on taking Photoshop's ACE test next summer. Once this is all over, though, I have no idea what will come next, or how to begin making the change of careers. Thoughts and insight appreciated!
