Right now a hobbyist, but I hope I'll be able to become a student and then a professional or/and freelancer. :)

Self employed and hobby all at the same time. When it needs to, it can earn a little side cash, but even still it's all just for fun. I want to shoot people on DA who get pissy because apparently it's wrong to do art just for fun, you have to be a quote unquote "professional" at all times. Lolz of that? Just because you went to school for something doesn't make you a better person XD

I'm an art student, studying both art and photography but mainly photography, and I'm hoping to become a freelance/proffesional wildlife photographer after sixth form and university.

But I do my art as mainly a hobby since I love doing digital art :D

Freelancing, but would also take a full-time gig if I had the opportunity

I've sold photography sessions to two businesses, but other than that I'm a hobbyist. ^^
