    Photographer's wages according to ecarrers.sg

    My current understanding of Singapore as an economy is that the workforce (including the more localized foreigners seeking a piece of the pie) are extremely sharp observers of the market and industry. When a particular industry shows promise, we will see huge movement of activities in that...

    Photographer's wages according to ecarrers.sg

    I for one, believe that 1.3k as an average figure may not be that far off the mark. I know numerous photographers who work full-time (or close to full-time) for without a fee. There are numerous part-time photographers who get approximately 1k per wedding assignment were not captured (which...

    Starting a photography business?

    Many very reputable photographers in the world started in a team. Also founders of MNCs. Jobs and Gates starting in a team. Larry and Sergey started in a team. But I'm not advocating starting 'as' a team though. And I'm not sure I mean the same thing as expro. I mean I would advise...

    Do you think photography biz market is saturated?

    In excess of 10k represents the amount they spend with me in total. Not pure profit (ala 1k per hour for 10 hours) Figures really need to be contextualized. There are photographers who're not paid enough. I see them spending tons of money on advertisements, equipments, competitions and what...

    Do you think photography biz market is saturated?

    Do you think photography biz market is saturated?

    kiwi2: In principle, we're in agreement. I do agree with your perspective on pricing and equitable value. Although in reality, not just in photography, we also witness how price does not equate quality. I'm sure you can come up with countless other examples from tons of other industries...

    Do you think photography biz market is saturated?

    kiwi2: I agree. In fact, in Singapore or not, it's unrealistic to assume that being rich equates to spending more money on any specific type of goods, photography or otherwise. There's a danger of over-generalization. But that's the risk of any type of generalization. And any...

    Do you think photography biz market is saturated?

    But I'm not hypothesizing. I'm speaking from experience. And I'm not talking about what's right and wrong, merely sharing my observations, that's all.

    Do you think photography biz market is saturated?

    Typical couple no. But we're talking about high end market. And 5 digit to 6 digit earners are unlikely to rationalize things they way you did.
