This is not about me. I have my business license and do photography full time but I was curious after it had come up on another website: Do you need a business license if you only plan on doing about one photo shoot a month or less? It had been my understanding that if you charge (even if its only $40 a shoot) then technically you are a business and should have a business licenses. Though if you don't advertise yourself as a business and only charge friends is that ok? Again i'm just curious and I realize the internet is not the best place for legal info.
