This is a chapter from the book A Lesser Photographer.
Are you still not content to remain an amateur? Are you still trying to figure out a way to make a few bucks from your photography? Believe it or not, there are two ways to make money with photography that will never die out, even as the rest of the industry mummifies.
The first is to be the absolute best photographer in the world in a niche that makes a lot of money for someone else.
The second is far more attainable.
What the world needs more of now, and for the foreseeable future, is more people with great ideas who just happen to be great photographers.
Visual storytelling was the best way to sell an idea 10,000 years ago, and nothing will change that for at least the rest of your lifetime.
