Sorry for the absence but I have some personal problems.

After 3 years of work, my employment contract will be end on May 10, so... I decided to open a 'P.IVA' (VAT number) to work freelance/self-employed as graphic designer & photographer.
It's not a simple thing, I need to invest money in hardware, software licence and other tools..  but it's the only thing I can do now because here in Italy there are many problems for employed people and I would like to work as freelance because it's my personal ambition from many years. Now it's the time to do it!
Here you see only my 'artistic' photos but outside DA I'm working as freelance graphic design (without VAT, it's an occasional work) since 1 years to do some money. I like this job, I prefer photography of course but it's not easy to become a professional photographer and I found more clients around graphic design (logos, brochures, flyers, etc.) and web design.
My official business facebook page will be open soon, now I'm working on my logo, brand and website.

I'm very busy and I can't work on my photos but ..wait for me.. I'll be back! It's a promise :hug: :)

Sorry if I don't reply to your message, faves, etc. but I'll do it when I'll come back here, I hope as soon as possible!


Love you,


Michela

Wish the best for your new work! I absolutely understand you (here in Greece things are even worse) and I feel that if you believe that this is what you have to do go for it with all your might!!

Being a professional photographer and making enough money to make ends meet is really hard. Unless maybe you want to do weddings and stuff. If you dont, things are really hard. Graphic work is quite a good alternative and maybe it will give you a chance to use your photography as well!

Non è per niente facile visto i tempi che corrono, però secondo me quando c'è talento, impegno e voglia di fare; piano piano credo che riuscirai ad affermarti e avere una certa tranquillità lavorativa ;)
Prendi tutto il tempo che serve, da qui non scappa nessuno!

Ciao Michela!

Credici, perché le capacità le hai.
Io manco del coraggio per mettermi in proprio a fare il fotografo e ho una figlia di nemmeno un anno a carico che la vita me l'ha già sconvolta... :lol: Quindi per un po' sto fermo!!
Ma ti auguro tutto il successo possibile. :wave:

Having the same issues here in my country i can totally understand you. I myself have been in the same situation 1 month ago when they didnt renew my contract. I tried freelancing and that didnt turn out well. It's pretty hard out here... I wish you all the best and i sincerely hope you get on your feet asap. You have the talent and quality of work. Best of luck! :hug:
