I couldn't agree more with this. I really don't think that some people understand just how hard it is to make money solely from photography. Nowadays we have to try anything we can just to get some bread on the table. Try being a stock photographer. Try seeing how your hard earned efforts can be sold for a pittance. What do you do? I may not agree with some of Mr Heaton's "adventures" but I certainly cannot say anything against trying to earn a crust of bread. My own situation here in France isn't simple. I am on a tax regime known as auto-entrepreneur. If I travel, and I do a lot, I can't actually claim any expenses on my tax due to the simplistic nature of the regime that has been created. There is the "normal" version but if you've crossed swords with the french administration system you'll know how complicated it can be. So complicated that even the French themselves ain't got a clue!!!
