Changing Type Of Photography

So I’ve been a photographer for about 10 years now. I started in weddings and slowly gone into environmental portraiture and I’m starting to feel a little burnt out from it and have been feeling called back to what I first did which was landscapes.... 

do you guys switch it up every so often or should photographers stick to one genre and just hit the ground running? 

I would want it to be somewhat profitable (not rich) but I’ve been doing this for so long i feel I need to start doing something more with it... like publishing books and selling prints and landscapes seems the direction I should go

thougts?

I wish someone would explain to me how one makes a living photographing landscapes.

I think you should shoot what you want, and that restrictions are bad. However, from a revenue generation perspective, you do what pays the bills.

Since I only photograph part-time, I can generally do what I want. Probably not the answer your looking for.

I have often thought about doing table top books or something along those lines. 

Jerrod Polin does a little segment that I find entertaining where he finds inspiring and interesting people, then photographs them as they go about their life. It’s very cool and he does the segment like it’s Reading Rainbow. Lol I do macro, so I was thinking I would go around the county first, taking photos of the different pollinator gardens, wildlife parks etc and then publishing them in to books for Texans to enjoy. The reason why I know this should work is because most of the pollinator gardens here are either private or brand new. The folks at the TAMU gardens have told me that so far, I have the best photos they have seen of the garden yet, which makes me think there hasn’t been a huge jump towards it. 

Perhaps it’s not just portrait, but perhaps it’s the models/subjects or the process in which you do portrait that you’re bored of. This can get you traveling, meeting new people, networking, and breathing new life in to something you once loved passionately.
