Otherwise...how you would even think to include Wedding Photographers on this list???

Ten Most Overpaid Jobs in the United States (in reverse order):


10) Wedding Photographers
Wedding photographers charge $2,000 to over $5,000 to shoot a wedding, for what amounts to a one day assignment plus a client meeting (and processing time). They must cover equipment and film development costs (with digital cameras, this cost goes away). Still, many photographers in major metros shoot two weddings each weekend in the May-to-October season, and can rack up $75,000 to $100,000 for six months work. And much of their work is mediocre. No adjustments for missing the best shot of the day, missed opportunities or amateurish techniques. No retakes.

The secrets out. I guess I should start parking the Porsche in the garage of my beach front summer home.
It also proves that research and knowledge in a subject are not required to write an article.

I think is it funny that the article is on an 'engineering" site. Engineering is a science but clearly whoever wrote it did not do much research.

Hopefully the author did not design any of the bridges I will be driving over to get home tonight.

It's just funny that he uses the absolute exceptions to the norm in every industry but his own.....

I guess he passed his manipulating statistics on the internet for personal gain class with a 4.0.


T3i, Sigma 10-20, Sigma 30 1.4, 18-55 kit, 55-250, YN-565, a few books, some software, and a desire to get good.....

You can use statistics to prove whatever point you want.

83% of the population knows that.

I'm so glad I am in the digital era so all of my pp cost have gone away. CS5, Lightroom 3, plus all of their upgrades, OnOne software, x-rite colorchecker passport, Macbook Pro, 24" Cinema Display. I must have just imagined that I paid hard earned money for of these things. Wow, what an imagination I have.

Consider the source of this article. Engineers believe that EVERYONE is overpaid, except for them of course:-)

Quitting my healthcare consulting job immediately...rack up some gear expenses and profit 80k. Sounds like a plan.
