Can photography as art put food on the table? Make enough money to live?

A while back, I was reading a blog post by Trent at The Simple Dollar (a personal finance blog). The topic of this post was artists making money from their art. Here is an excerpt from Trent\'s post: Quote: \"Earlier this week, I stumbled upon a great interview with Francis Ford Coppola over at the 99 percent. In this interview, Coppola talks about the past and future of people making money from their art, whether it be music, movies, or other things: Coppola: \"We have to be very clever about those things. You have to remember that it’s only a few hundred years, if that much, that artists are working with money. Artists never got money. Artists had a patron, either the leader of the state or the duke of Weimar or somewhere, or the church, the pope. Or they had another job. I have another job. I make films. No one tells me what to do. But I make the money in the wine industry. You work another job and get up at five in the morning and write your script.
