Display Suite is one of the essential modules which I use on every project. It allows you to change the look and feel of entity bundles, i.e., content types, vocabularies, users and much more. Building custom layouts and adding fields is a breeze, but there's another feature you may not be aware of and that's custom field templates. Display Suite allows you to change the markup which is used to render individual fields.
It's a well-known frustration that the core image management within Drupal isn't great (to put it mildly). Compared to CMS' such as wordpress it falls very short, there are however a few modules you can install and configure to help manage images better within your site.
Views is powerful, it is too complex for many users. For this reason, Node Gallery is still the easiest way to build a photo gallery in Drupal. It requires very little set-up and almost no configuration.

Freelancing is a very satisfactory way of earning a living. The money can be quite good, and the freedom you get is priceless. In a time where job security is an oxymoron, freelancing is sometimes the only avenue, even if temporarily.
For most freelancers, the primary concern is uncertainty of the income stream. You are not being paid a regular income each month. Instead, you need to go out and look for work, and sometimes things may be dry for a few weeks, which can be very stressful.
Many CMS's or frameworks have a "community" but what Drupal has is incredibly unique. Drupal has a truly international community, with a huge amount of communication, sharing of responsibility and participation of all kinds going on across borders at all times.
