If you give up the fight, you may die of desire. Yes, photography is a professional field in recruitment. But personal and professional work will always be in demand. The goal is to make you unique, promote that unique brand and stay at the top of the list.
Customers still want value, and you can give it to them. Photography as a profession has not died. This industry has seen a steady influx of people who want to pursue photography as a full-time career. In addition to the countless online photos of amateur photographers, many people view photography as their job and not as a hobby.
You'll support this idea if you've been following global events closely in recent years. No, photography isn't dead, but the career of professional photography is panting like a fish out of water. Professional photographers used to be able to simply take pictures. Now they have to teach classes, write and sell e-books, run workshops and much more.
Multiple sources of income are the norm. There will always be some photographs that only take pictures, but most of them struggle to make ends meet. And a new generation of part-time professionals has emerged. They have the skills of a professional photographer, but they must have a full time or part time job somewhere to pay the bills.
And if you're shooting commercials with art directors or shooting headshots as a team, all you have to do is show up with suitcases full of equipment. Whereas before, capturing a properly exposed image required technical knowledge, photographic skills and creative vision in equal measure, today, the computers embedded in each camera have taken over 99% of all photographs captured in the digital age. Fortunately for me, I saw it coming early enough to invest my income in commercial real estate. They usually do unglamorous things, such as teaching or doing boring, repetitive commercial work, such as wedding music.
Photographers market their craft by taking pictures of events, people, animals, and many other types of scenes and selling them for income. Whereas before a properly exposed image required technical knowledge, photographic skills and creative vision in equal measure, today on-board computers have taken charge of exposing 99% of all photographs captured in the digital age.
