    2. Very interesting post, I was really looking to go into portrait photography myself. But learning that editiorial work was a dying art, I quickly adjusted my plans! But it is interesting you still feel there is potential in this industry and I do wonder if some of the things said about magazines dying out completely are true! It’s like when people said books would die out, I can’t see it myself!
