I know several local photographers in the same boat.

One runs a studio but is never there because she's always at another job that actually makes money.

A couple of photographers that run a studio constantly move the studio as the free or very cheap rent runs out. Whoops - bargain rent ran out, let's move to another bargain rent location.

One guy just had his house repossessed and is now on somebody's couch.

Another photographer complained she couldn't make ends meet any more from photography. 20 years ago she earned more as a photographer than her doctor husband. Now she can't make ends meet.

That's more than some. I know there're a lot of local photographers that just don't get any work and work in retail to compensate.

Now tell me that photography isn't dead.
