Maybe I should have only had 3, Photographer, Entrepreneur or Other  ;D

It is quite interesting so far and blows a few pre-conceptions away, with over 25% making a full time living from photography that would include microstock revenue as 'all or part' of thier income, Illustrators might have selected other or media which increases the number.

The other main industries that have high numbers are the more high paid job sectors, 'boys with thier toys' and not Joe public with thier point  & shoot, how many of these would ever earn enough from photography to give up the day job, it might be considered a sideline in retirement, which shows that the part time revenue from microstock might not be the main reason for contributing in a lot of cases, I like many had my DSLR kit before I even discovered microstock and a few IT guys I work with have top drawer DSLR cameras just for social use.

Oh come on. You've heard of a day job. It's that thing that's paying for your microstock habit.   ;)

I was an elementary school art teacher for years.... then left to do photography full time... then last year was offered a DREAM job. So, I'm still shooting full time and teaching 3 days a week. I guess teaching is the "day" job, since the photography happens whenever I have time.
