I am just starting college this fall I plan to get a basic business degree from University of Phoenix, and I am very interested in going into automotive photography, but I have some concerns and questions about making that my main career.

1. I know to have a company one must build a client base first, but in this economy I really have odds of that happening against me....since I am a female and I am so young...no ones going to be interested in some young chick that takes car pictures and expects money for it.

2. This goes along with concern #1 but where and how would I go about building a good solid client base?

3. I would like to start up some sort of website for people to look at my photos, but I want it to look as professional and stylish as possible, some of the pro photographers on this forum have AWESOME looking ones, how or where do I learn how to do stuff like that???

4. Does anyone know of photography businesses in the Phoenix area?

5. After college I dont know whether to go into a business (ie ProEx or Lifetouch) to get my foot in the door or if I should just focus on a career that will get me more money so that some day I can have my own photography business and not fall on my ass as money wise.

I appreciate any answers or supportive advise anyone can give me, I've been pretty stressed out about my future and would like to have some sort of plan.
