Because photographers' jobs are so diverse, so are their salaries. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the average photographer earned about $26,000 in 2004, though some earned considerably more. Those who work full-time tend to earn more than those who freelance (are self-employed).
