At my other job I had a conversation with somebody. I knew them as they are a photographer. The last time we spoke, which was a week or two back, he was fairly chipper and said that there was money in photography if you were any good at it. Today he came in, a bit down at the mouth having completed moving house. Apparently the bank had repossessed his home.

Now, what does that tell you about the market? He has a very nice website with lots of very nice photos. He's capable and has an eye for a photo plus years and years of experience.

Photography does not make money any more. It's dead!

If you truly believe photography is dead....get out of here, go, and take your daft view with you on the way.

Photography isn't dead, it's only just beginning.

There may be certain areas in decline, but it's hardly the death of photography.

There will always be a place for good photography, and image makers to create it.
