Do you feel like you are at the point where you've explored every photography niche and made up your mind about what suits you? I think that just like beginners, professional photographers can take a while to identify a specific style and master it. Your thoughts?

Whereas I have a specialty, I don't limit myself to a particular niche. A photographer's choice depends on many factors, but at times, the decision can be purely out of their control. Have you heard of those who followed in the path of their mentors?

I was just about to say that my mentor had some influence over the niche I chose. When you're learning the ropes under someone, you tend to follow in their footsteps. Choosing a specialty could help in perfecting a skill!

Would you the right niche based on skill or the possibility of making more money? I could be a lover of nature but realize that I can make more money with wedding photography. Much as we may want to specialize, it is also advisable to be versatile.

I don't think I am at that level to be able to choose a niche per se just yet. However, once I become more experienced, I think I would choose two to three to excel at. I would prefer to have a variety of clients.

Every photographer's journey is unique, so it doesn't matter what option you choose. Some don't necessarily confine themselves to a niche. Over time, you'll be able to make that decision.
