Industry trauma: nearly 20% of photographers considered changing careers during the epidemic
Recently, Lensrentals, a photographic equipment rental agency, conducted a survey of more than 1,000 photographers to understand the impact on their business during the coronavirus period. The results showed that some photographers were really hit hard.
This survey is just that Lensrentals plans to report to its customers at the beginning of each month One in a series of emails sent by the group. But with the development of the epidemic, they hope to paint a more accurate picture of the industry: how many people are unemployed, how many people are applying for and are receiving relief funds, and how many people are considering changing their careers completely. You can find the complete survey on this link, and here are a few key statistics:
Nearly 80% of the respondents said that their jobs in April were “all or almost all” cancelled;
Nearly 60% said that in May and the near future The same situation happened in the work of
67% of the respondents applied for some kind of government assistance program; only 13% had a slight impact;
nearly 20% Interviewers said that due to the impact of the epidemic, they are “considering leaving the industry.”
is currently overseas The epidemic situation is still serious, but no matter where photographers are, they cannot go out, interact with other people, and shoot on the spot. At the same time, commercial customers and business cooperation are also suspended or cancelled due to the epidemic. . . . . . This is not just a problem of a single photography industry, but also the status quo of the entire economy and business system, but we still hope that photographers can stay in the photography field, or return to the photography industry when conditions permit in the future, and continue to play more More creativity in shooting.
