This may come across as being a little harsh, I am sorry but so be it.
If I am not sympathetic that you are leaving photography after a year of running your business, sorry. I have been doing this for 32 years and I still have slow times but I have not quit!!
If you are serious about running a photography business, or any business, it takes a lot more than a year to get things moving!
If you are considering starting a business get ready for the long haul. It is not like a 30 minute TV show that someone starts a business and makes a killing in the first 10 minutes and then gets to go sit on the beach and travel the world for the other 20 minutes while the business pays for it!!!!
