Also, my current profession is in video/film production. I wonder what the market would be for a videographer to travel with cruisers and document their adventures??? anybody??
Very big laugh! I've been a freelance cinematographer for 25 years. Every year the business gets more and more saturated with kids. Every school in the nation now has a video production program spitting out grads.
Nobody wants to get their hands dirty anymore. That leads to two things:
One, jobs like filmaking are saturated
Two, jobs like diesel mechanic are paying VERY good because of the scarcity of workers.
Every time I turn around I read of somebody who is going to finance their cruising by selling their photography. I have a friend/photographer who crews on boats around the world and takes pictures. He has sold many to major sailing magazines. He gets about $100 a pop. Good luck living the good life on that!
500 channels of TV should provide an endless supply of work. But the pie is only so big & when cut into 500 slices each piece is so small there's no budget. So there's lots of low paying work...enjoy!
You need to decide if you want to be in movies OR go sailing.
