I recently read an article at DPReview about a survey of wedding photographers, and how they spent their time. In a nutshell the results were as follows
4 % Shooting
55 % Editing / Processing
11 % Culling a shoot
30% Admin / Marketing
If you put the administrative time aside, and look at just pure photography related activity this translates to :
6 % Shooting
79% Editing / Processing
15 % Culling a shoot
Obviously wedding photography is different than nature photography. But I would be curious to hear what percent of time you devote to each of these photography related activities.
As a hobbyist primarily doing landscapes and macro, I would guess that I’m maybe at :
10 % Shooting
60 % Editing / Processing
30 % Culling a shoot, including adding keywords
I would be interested to hear about what time you spend on these activities.
