There’s no doubt that being a photographer these days isn’t easy. But arguably, there have never been more opportunities for photographers than there is today. So it’s not all doom and gloom.

I know what you are thinking. That I have finally lost my mind and all sense of reality. I mean who in their right mind will ever try to argue that it’s a great time to be a photographer? The reality is that every photographer is facing increased competition at a time when fees have been declining rapidly for over a decade.
