The U.S. Department of Labor reports that employment for photographers at print newspaper, periodical, book, and directory publishers will decline by more than 34 percent through 2022 as a result of industry consolidation, declines in advertising revenue, and the continuing transition of print publications to digital formats. Employment for photographers who work in television and radio broadcasting will be better, increasing by more than 8 percent through 2022.¬†Photojournalism is a highly competitive field, but individuals who develop a strong portfolio, develop and maintain professional contacts, and stay on the edge of digital technology will find job opportunities in the future.
