Industries & Professions /
Employment of photographers will increase about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2018, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook. The demand for new images should remain strong in education, communication, entertainment, marketing, and research. As the Internet grows and more newspapers, magazines, and book publishers turn to electronic publishing, demand will increase for photographers to produce digital images. Additionally, as the population grows and many families have more disposable income to spend, the demand should increase for photographers who specialize in portraiture, especially of children.
