I'm not a /p/ro but I'm a freelance writer who has gotten some press credentials for some events. I bought a DSLR last Fall so I'm going to use the press stuff to get my foot in the door for some freelance photography.
>>2733465 Unless you're going to explain who the "right people" are and how to meet them, telling people to meet the right people, make connections and network is useless.
Just like how saying "have a functioning camera" is a useless piece of advice if I don't talk about the different kinds of cameras, how to find one that meets your needs and how to use it (or at least direct you to where you can find that info).
>>2733524 What kind of photography career do you want?
If you want to shoot portraits, do some for free until you build a portfolio. Continue to develop a good reputation and you will get progressively better gigs.
If you want to hang around celebrities and do snapshits, then you need to move to California or New York or something and try and go to as many parties as possible. eventually, you'll move up the ranks.
another thing you can do, if you want to do 'party photography', is just go to a club or EDM show and start taking lots of pictures. Bring cards with your name on them and then post the pictures on Facebook. people will look for the pictures of themselves and you'll 'meet' a lot of people that way.
