that maybe that was the best way to make some money with Photography. Of course, you've got the other type: fashion, famous people, magazine photographers like Annie Leibowitz, but, how many of them exist? This type of photographer is also probably nearing extinction... So, what's left? Fine Arts? It's also worse than ever.
The problem is the printed medium, which is disappearing. As an article I recently read said: "today newspapers don't compete for quality, they compete for speed". So go the reporters too.
For us who have another profession, it's not an imminent danger (well, architecture is in bad shape too), but what about the people whose profession is photography?
