06. Photography genres to make you money

What are your potential markets? There are plenty of them and commercial photography isn’t just about advertising and product photography. In this chapter Karl talks through your options and looks into some of them in depth and explains just how lucrative certain areas of photography can be.


  1. This is interesting, As a degree trained illustrator (2002), i have been 3d modelling all sorts from architectural models to whole surveyed landscapes, mainly for the construction and town planning industries for the last 15 years. I have run my own business for the last 3 years and always been interested in commercial photography, its always been a part of my workflow in creating textures and backgrounds for the 3d models. I am now embarking on using my photography skills commercially in its own right, so sort of coming in from the opposite angle!
    just signed up to this via monthly fee, and so far loving your honesty, very much appreciated 🙂

    1. Thanks Alan, there are a lot of photography colleagues of mine using 3D modelling and merging it with product photography. Most car ‘photography’ is actually a 3d model merged into a photographic image. If you have good 3d and render skills these are a huge advantage for the future.
