How to Break Into the Photography Business with dPS Writer Gina Milicia


Our very own dPS writer Gina Milicia was recently interviewed and asked about her thoughts on how to break into the photography business.

She talks openly about how she got her break in the business and some of her struggles. I can totally relate to what she says about just wanting to do the thing you enjoy, no matter if you you get rich or make a living from it or not. Watch the video and see if you can relate to what she says too:
