The results of the Selling Stock Photographer Income Survey I launched in late August are in. Anyone can go to this link (http://www.selling-stock.com/Article/photographer-income-survey-results-10 ) and view the detailed analysis, and charts,  of the results for FREE.
 
There were 270 responses. Of those who responded 39% were from North America, 49% were from the EU and 12% from Asia and the rest of the world. Fifty-two percent of those from the EU were from the United Kingdom.

There are also detailed breakdowns of the age and annual photography earnings of the respondents. 65% of respondents earned less than $20,000 per year and 14% earned over $60,000 per year.

Thanks! Interesting results for North America.  About 75% of the photographers make less $40,000 which I consider the 'bare' minimum  to make a full time living.

Presumably that's why the conclusion is "the business of stock photography has become more of a part-time, supplementary source of income and no longer a viable career."

And again, the results just says 'income', I can't remember if that was specifed in the survey as 'gross income', 'gross pre-tax income', 'net pre-tax income' or 'net take-home income'.

From the age range I would draw the implication that for many this is a supplement to retirement income rather than being their sole or even main income. Its a very small sample though so hard to draw any definite conclusions.
