    hmm.. i dunno.. there seems to be more and more of such questions these days..
    i think it depends on a lot of factors ?

    its like asking .. does a banker in a local bank earns 7k a month ?
    Then I sm sure there are bankers who earns more or less than that amount..
    so aint these kind of questions very vague ? and it really varies ?

    the account department will suggest hire a photographer under their payroll, pay him $4500, even he/she only shoot 100 hrs a month, still work out to be $45 per hour, cheap cheap only.

    than the rest of the money, can commission a famous photographer just for one hour shoot, good enough.

    so I tell you, don't be a photographer, be an accountant better.

    If a photographer can be employed under this way, no need to have the headache of looking for assignments, and just shoot when asked to. $4.5k is actually quite a good deal if all benefits like leave and CPF are included.

    not that i know of. maybe part timers who work long hours to cover events might make more. i know their full timers don't last long because of the long hours.

    You do the math

    > isit possbile for part time photographer to earn 7k a month by working for mediacorp?

    7k per month divided by 1 = 7k per month - cool
    7k per month divided by 2 = 3.5k per month - ok lah
    7k per month divided by 3 = 2.3k per month - hmmm
    7k per month divided by 4 = less than 2k per month - aia lah
    7k per month divided by 5 = 1.4k per month - sigh..
    7k per month divided by 6 = 1.15k per month - sigh sigh...
    7k per month divided by 7 = 1k per month - now sigh all together ...
    7k per month divided by 8 = less than 1k per month - come to clubsnap and complain about this post

    Depends whether the part-timer shoots for passion or not.

    i guess what u were not told is was it every month like that ?

    this year make 7k a month becos economy is good ? and 2 years during recession time make 1k a month ? so add up and average still like that lah

    i know a celebrity photographer who can make that kind of money becos he got the right portfolio for it.

    Yes! A pg can earn 7K in Aug, but in Oct/Nov/Dec might be less or might be more...he himself can't be sure.

    1 thing for sure, he must be really proactive in getting assignments and marketing himself with good work.

    Pick up a copy of 8 days/iWeekly/etc and you can see that they have a list of in house photographers. Some of them who are more famous are their chief/senior photographer who also have their own studio ie, freelance ( but paid much less than $7K by mediacorp ). So do your maths, you think a part time photographer can earn $7K a month from Mediacorp?
    I get paid more shooting part time ...... damn, I should find more time to shoot part time
