Are you pros crazy?

Not only did professional photographer make the list of the ten most "Stressful Jobs that Pay Badly," this was the only career where 100% of respondents (how many? I don't know) said their jobs were stressful. Low pay, high stress. Good signs that your job is a labor of love.

Heh. Crossing topics a bit. "Sure, some masochist'll do it. If you want to get paid better, crank out those Pulitzers on spec while we bid for cell phone shots. What, you want to go where the news is? Loser." )

See, I didn't even mention weddings.

Maybe 100% of respondents were wedding photographers.

Heheh. Hey, with decent health care, everyone who complains could at least have had *me* doing your school and portrait mill stuff instead of the usual assortment.

'Labor of love' probably shouldn't mean 'Excuse to underpay.'

OK, OK. I'm just punchy today.

Always in the back of my head, though, 'If you don't like the portrait mills, you coulda had me to either make you happy or bitch at. '

May be stressful, low pay, but I will NEVER go back to the corporate grind. And when there's no work, it's nice having a few days off in the middle of the week (even though it means eating lots of Ramen noodles...... )
