Chuck your daytime job and become a full-fledged photog. The potential seen in the 10 odd pics especially in http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31118465
is enormous. You are an old man - you dont have too much time.

Build your port on TFCD and start charging later - sky is the limit for your talent.

Well thanks!
That's pretty much the plan in about six years. I'm too close to retirement to quit now.

You have a keen eye for spotting beauty - in models as well as in locations. Photography comes naturally to you. A couple of pics in your port bring down your price due to poor light and exposure. But you still should charge $55~$60/hr

TF is not a bad thing. Art is art - Art is not necessarily money.I would continue making art on TF basis.

As far as modeling. Quid pro quo!
