FASHIONISTA CAME V CORRECT WITH THE BREAKING NEWS ON HOW STREET STYLE PHOTOGRAPHERS MAKE MONEY. Who woulda thunk it was by selling their photographs?! I had no idea street style bloggers were the only bloggers who actually made money off of something they produce. The piece highlights that real, actual street style photographers generally get monthly retainers from print and digital publications that range anywhere from $6,000 to $30,000 a month. According to the piece, Conde Nast is the broke boi of the publishing giants, paying only around $6K for a month's work. Now that these numbers are out there, the level of strug at the post-show pap mosh pit is gonna be so next level come September. But, keep in mind, Fashionista's article also makes sure to point out that most photographers pay for their own travel expenses, and that nascent photogs can expect to make $100-150 bucks per photo.
