Re: Is professional photography dying out?

That's not trolling. He's speaking the facts, the truth and asking questions.

You need to sit down and truly evaluate what's been brought up in this thread. You've got it in your head that you've done everything there is to do - and done it right and frequently enough - to get results. However, since you seem to have few customers the proof is obvoius - you have NOT done it right.

Now I'm sure if you were in the midst of an amish community it would indeed be true that nobody buys professional potraiture. But there would be a market to toursists of scenics and amish life.

You claim to do commercial photography and nobody visits your website. Well, to be honest I bet very few commercial folks go googling for photographers when then need something. They'll first think of photographers they know firsthand, then ask around to their friends. And unless it's a new business needing a photographer for the first time they'll have someone to call already in their rolodex.
