Re: Does a travel photographer exist?

Going back to the original question.. yes, there are still professional travel photographers  but not as many as there were, or at least they're not exclusively travel as they once were but have had to diversify. I used to work on commission for a number of travel magazines and then get repeat sales on the images through a stock library and I could earn a good income from that. Nowadays I still get travel assignments but it's just a small part of the work I do as a photographer. Like others I've had to diversify and specialise in other fields.

I do have a couple of friends that are still working exclusively as travel photographers and they continue to do well from it. They have tremendous talent however and have managed to build a sufficient client base to secure a stable income. Not easy these days.
