When I started my career as a professional photographer back in Italy most of my revenue came from ceremony and commercial photography. From marriages to commercial catalogs seemed to be, if not the only, for sure the best way to get some business with a camera in my hands. “Artistic photos”, defined as those created for the pure pleasure of capturing an image that expressed my own values, remained more of a pastime for me than a potential source of income.
