After discovering photography in 2018 and dedicating the past year of my life to this passion I want to turn it into a career. This paper looks into the necessary research it takes to start a photography business. After carefully conducting the research, I created a business proposal appropriate to our current pandemic situation. I looked at different ways COVID-19 will affect my desired profession and the events and music industry in which I hope to work. After thoroughly familiarizing myself with these industries, I was able to discern that a career in photography is possible if I market myself, expand my clientele, have honorable prices, and continue to put my foot in the door of different opportunities. In 2021 - following COVID-19 - the music and events industry is expected to boom, thus giving me hope for a future career as an event photographer.
