Hi All:

As I am sure most of here know the photography industry is suffering with professional photographers (those whose photographic efforts actually pay their rent) walking away in droves every day. I came across a great article written by Maria Piscopo in the August 2011 issue of Shutterbug Magazine that talks about the state of the photography industry with an emphasis on the portrait part of the industry. The article is titled "The Portrait Photography Business; From Kids To CEO's"

This is a blunt but truly excellent article that lays bare all of the problems that professional photographers face today from GWC's and Digital Debbies to ignorant clients who simple do not know or appreciate the true value of a professional photographers work to the reality that photography is a value added business where we professionals must educate out clients on the merits of the work that we do.

Shutterbug is a bit behind in posting articles to their web site so anyone who wants to read this article will have to buy the magazine but this article is worth reading over and over again so buying the magazine might turn out to be the best money any of us spend for a while.

Good reading everyone.

Thanks for the heads-up, Dave. I don't usually buy Shutterbug but that article, I've noticed, has garnered quite a bit of attention around the internet's photography-sphere.
