Re: Is professional photography dying out?

I would have to say not only is business not dying out,  but I'm having as much or more fun than a decade ago. Experience and longevity count for something.

Financially  I have not spent the last decade adapting to, dealing with, and/or otherwise spending time and resources on sensor based technology. That's tens of thousands of dollars in capital outlay savings to be  utilized in other ways.  MF film based images are still acceptable for clients in advertising, so buying in to a quality MF film system  paid off.  Add a scanner  and a fast computer (which go on for years thanks to software) and my business related capital investments are almost nil.  Financially,  a slow six months is inconsequential at this point. Keeps things in perspective.

Eventually I will  invest in  digital rigs.  Eventually. If client needs justify the investment. I don't have a cat.
