Rob Galbraith: Survey reveals much about working as a photographer in Britain
"'Although the advent of digital has been fantastic, the flood-gates have been opened for all the 'johnny come saturdays' who don't undertake any training to become professional photographers overnight.'" These and other revealing quotations were gathered during a recent survey by The British Photographic Council of almost 1700 UK-based photographers. The results provide an interesting if gloomy snapshot of what it's like to earn a living behind the camera in that country.
