I wouldn't say it's dead.  I'd say old ways of marketing and sales techniques are possibly dead.

I know a portrait/wedding photographer who went from a "disc and session, all for $150" to "$200 session fee + in-person sales + $700-$3,000 per session in products" in the last 2 years.  Yes her work is good, at the level it should be to run a business.  But it's not the best thing I've ever seen.  Yes her website is attractive.  But it's not the best thing I've ever seen.

I would say without hesitation that she found techniques that do work.  Photography is not dead for her.
