This industry is growing at an unbelievable rate. When I bought my first SLR, it was $1000 and came with 2 standard (crappy) lenses and a bag. Today you can buy a Canon Rebel for under $600! It’s crazy! The more popular they become, the more “Photographers” start to emerge on facebook. It seems so easy. You get an SLR, you put it on “P” and make a Facebook page and wa-la! You’re a photographer! …… right? Isn’t that it?
