Ever since I graduated 8 yrs ago, I have been shooting freelance around the full time gigs I have had with different arts organizations and galleries. In February of this year, after I had finished a contract, I found myself with the opportunity to try this whole photography thing full time. Yikes! To get my ass in gear, I started reading and researching. The first thing I read was My So Called Freelance Life by Michelle Goodman. And I loved it! I literally could not put it down. It wasn't like reading a business book, it was more like hanging out with a cool friend who knew a lot of stuff and had a tendency to swear. If you are freelance, or thinking about doing it, or know anyone who trying their hardest at it...buy this book! I am serious. Check out Michelle's site, The Anti 9 to 5 Guide, for more great info.
