Photography is not for people who lack grit. DATA USA reports that the average salary for photographers is $36,699, which is $13,514 less than national average salary in the U.S. It is also a shrinking profession, projected to fall 5.6 percent in the next decade, even as the economy grows.
If photography is your calling – and the challenges don’t deter you – then you need a game plan for building a sustainable business that can beat the average without making you stressed, crazed, and burnt out. My goal here is to help with that game plan.
