Our Photographers’ Surveys allow us to produce a snapshot of the current state of the industry and identify any emerging trends. These are designed to provide useful information that photographers can then use in their business planning and marketing.

To kick things off we’re looking to provide photographers with useful insights on the health of the industry, payment trends, plus a quick look at how various marketing channels are performing.

The survey is deliberately quick and simple, and will only take most people couple of minutes to complete, though there are some long-form answers available if you wish to elaborate.

Depending on the response we get, we would like to conduct multiple surveys through the course of the year to examine a range of aspects of the business of photography, and give you plenty more ideas … and hard data… to work with.

For that we do need your help…

So please complete the survey for starters, but then also take a moment to share this site with your photographer friends and colleagues.

If you’d also like to send a link to your Photo Buyers, that will really help us gather more useful data there as well!
