One side hustler is sharing how he turned his second job in photography into a thriving business worth the equivalent of £108,000. Sean Audet, 30, is from Winnipeg, Canada and quits his role as a chef to work as a food photographer. With over 200 clients, including McDonald's, the young woman has been able to acquire a sizable book. Mr. Audet took on a side hustle to supplement his income and pursue a passion project. But little did he know, that this job would replace his main career and earn him $134,000 a year.
The businessman usually charges a couple thousand dollars for a photography shoot, he said. This would usually be the duty for new clients, but for more established clients, the charge could be around $17,500. In 2018, when Audet first started his side hustle, he made $87,403 but his earnings doubled nearly every year. The entrepreneur spent an estimated $19,000 on business expenses in 2022.
The side hustler added: So models, stylists and sometimes additional help. I worked in culinary arts as a chef and then sous chef in restaurants and pop-ups for five to seven years before I really started working in photography. As a graduate of college, he gained entry into the creative profession as a researcher and developer, while managing a pop-up restaurant in 2016.
