Is Photography Right For Me?

Photographers typically do the following:

  • Advertise and market services to attract clients
  • Use various photographic equipment and techniques
  • Capture subjects in commercial quality photographs
  • Utilize natural or artificial light to enhance the subject’s appearance
  • Maintain a digital portfolio to demonstrate work

In May 2010 the median hourly wage for photographers was $14.00. The lowest 10% earned about $8.34 and the highest 10% earned more than $30.48. One benefit of being a photography is flexible hours. Keep in mind the demand for some types of photographers can fluctuate with the season. So, if you are a wedding photographer your busiest time of year will be spring and summer. Photographer employment is projected to grow by 13% from 2010 to 2020.
