Thread: Interest in Photography

  1. #1

    Default Interest in Photography

    How can we quantify the general interest in photography?
    Are there like more than 100,000 people interested in this? Anyone knows where I can find the appropriate statistics?

    Hmmm.

    Hard to quantify ... from people who emo snap, to people who are very fanatic about getting everything right before hitting the shutter button, and many more in between.

    My gut feeling tells me it's more than that...btw, are you doing a project on this? if so, then you got to fix the geographical location. If any general location is possible, probably you can try to search if there's any studies on this by any Jap dslr maker base in Japan.

    it is an amount that is very hard to calculate.
    maybe it is just too many.

    don't think it is possible to get the figures for people interested in photography.

    if this piece of info is important to you for whatever reason, probably u can try getting sales figures of photographic equipment (or its trends) and try to correlate it with interest in photography by the population. however, do remember to state the limitations of this correlation if it is for the purpose of assignments or other objective purposes.

    interesting feedbacks! Thank you all
    It does seem to me that it's really difficult to quantify but will take your advices.

    Cheers!

    You may consider taking a sample size and extrapolate to generalise about the percentage of people in a specific area that has general interest in photography.

    I don't think anyone had done a satistics on this before. probably they're all busy shooting elsewhere.

    You mean Singapore only?

    Look at it much simpler: Canon sold 40 mill cameras (EOS!!! - not point & shoot). Nikon - google and you will probably find something. And the growth is accelerating; more and more are sold every year.

    Not to mention phones with cameras - which we'll probably consider still toys. But now at 5 mpix are starting to become more relevant.

    My take for your question: digital alone 200 mill+; analog 50 mill+
    Whereby my definition: Every owner of a camera is also 'interested'.
    If you want to refine this to 'serious' make it SLRs: 50+ mill
