Amateur Photographers In More Demand Than Professionals
Amateur photography is on the rise, driven by stock agencies which license photos and sell them to print media.
New York Times reports that the demand for amateur photography is on the rise, often at the cost of professionally trained photographers. Affordable digital cameras, the gradual fall of the print industry and the rise of stock agencies which license amateur photos from photosharing sites such as Flickr mean that amateur photographers are giving professionals a run for their money. Since amateurs do not mind getting paid small checks to license their photos as they don’t shoot images for a living, it hurts professional photographers who often solely rely on photography to earn a living.
