its hard to compete in this unless your saying you got better equipment or something that isnt irrelevant.
You don't realize it yet, but you just made my point. I think the word YOU ment to use, is RELEVANT.

Equipment doesn't make you what you are Gerry. I'm willing to bet I may have less equipment than even you. Seriously.

What PC and I have been trying to tell you for months now is that you have your current aspiration set at "working for Walmart". And if that's the goal you want, then great. But I think that you could do better, if you'd really try.

It's hard to explain. But walking into a bonafide studio with past work experience at Walmart is certainly not going to be an asset. I think that's what I'm trying to say to you Gerry.

Right now im just trying to get a job. Ive been out of work for a good while *other than assisting a wedding photography very part time* and theres just not many studios in this area. And the studios there are, thier family ran or not big enough to really employ someone other than who's there, and the ones that are big enough are eitiher walmart or have people working there till they die or retire. So im just applying where I can.

And having walmart as a reference will make it easier to get a job in the future since they hire thier own first.

I know most of the skils I learn from them wont be used in a professional studio, maybe some customer relation skills and posing concepts. But I think having worked it before compared to having no portrait experience will benefit me later in life as well.

Actually my current aspirations are:

1. To own my own studio, full time or part time one depending on how much business there is in my area. *but I need experience in this first, hence schooling and trying to get related work where I can, even if its walmart or walgreens or sears or anything of that nature, I can always switch jobs to work in a better business.

2. Perhaps have a retail part to it for camera supplies, since it seems not many places in the area sells the stuff, and if they do they dont have the specialty stuff.

3. The idea of having a coffee shop section to it is appealing but not sure if its feasable. Tim Hortons is very common here and people love the coffee and in the area I plan to live, there are no timmies. Also it would be a place to sell prints on the walls.

4. Then theres craft and art shows to sell prints in.

5. Wedding's.
