    How much does a 360 Panoramic photographer earn on average? I already know that it depends on:
    1) Amount of fee charged.
    2) Amount of work available.
    3) Type of project undertaken.
    4) Place / country of work.
    5) Etc, etc..

    All I just want to know is numbers eg: 3000 US$ per month in US or 6000 AUD in Australia or for UK 2500 UK pounds in UK.

    I’m Planning to change my carrier and take-up 360 photography professionally and start creating virtual tours for the companies. Yes I know I can only work in the country I live (at present). But want to know what’s the scope in general internationally. I think it would be a nice general awareness / information for all the forum members. I’m new here. Please Seniors, Mentors I will appreciate your input.

    Hello there!

    I’m planning to take-up 360 photography professionally and want to earn by creating virtual tours for the companies.

    Before I can make a carrier move, I thought this a good place(website) to get guidance from seniors and mentors.

    So my question to you people is..How much does a 360 Panoramic photographer earn on average? I already know that it depends on:
    1) Amount of fee charged.
    2) Amount of work available.
    3) Type of project undertaken.
    4) Place / country of work.
    5) Etc, etc..

    Could I just know the numbers eg: 3000 US$ per month in US or 6000 AUD in Australia or for UK 2500 UK pounds.

    Yes I know I can only work in the country I live (at present). But want to know what’s the scope in general internationally. I’m new here. Please Seniors, Mentors I will appreciate your input.

    Thanks and regards.

    As a freelancer your income depends a LOT on your skills and engagement in marketing.
    Besides that local markets are also varying a lot.
    As a newcomer I’d say you’d better first evaluate what’s possible in your vicinity and start to collect a portfolio and references, otherwise it will be tough because 360 photography has significantly advanced in recent years.

    Thank you Mr.Jürgen Schrader for the reply.
    I got it:
    (1) “income depends a LOT on your(my) skills and engagement in marketing.
    (2) Besides that local markets are also varying a lot.”

    I just can confirm what Jürgen posted. Also you should think about your main target groups. Offering just 360 is often not enough. You should be able to offer more than this depending on the needs of your target groups.

    Thank you Marcus Morba for the input.

    I want the future 360 photographers to have a comparable uniform earnings accross different geograhic markets to withhold the honor of this profession and to give them freedom to enjoy their work in any locale (market) not worrying about the feasibility of carrying out their (passion) project in a low market where otherwise they would have loved to gone.

    By the way the aim of this discussion was to bring to awareness as to what the market is like in differnt geographic places at present and what can be done to regulate it in future.. otherwise future generation will try to move in only one direction of the globe (where there is more money. err..demand).

    I tried to setup as a VR service only and it wasn’t enough for agents selling real estate. They wanted photos and staging and cleaning.

    There’s lot of business out there for sure but getting started is the hard part sadly. If you want to grow quickly the best thing you can do is lots of free work to get your work out into the world for other to see and share and give word of mouth.

    I’m about to start a new campaign going door to door for business and the first three places I’m going to do for free. The fourth I’m going to ask for $40, the fifth I’m going to ask for $60 and keep going up until people’s faces curl at the price.

    Wish me luck haha
