How much money do Nat Geo photographers make?

In India as an intern i am getting ?31,700 approx $500 and incentives like traveling insurance + free stay @the most luxurious hotel + free equipments + 40%of the whole assignment expenses.

National Geographic photographers are temporary or full-time contractors – that means that their contracts cover one story at time.It totally depends upon the field you choose.

The editorial rate in the US is about $400-$500 per day. This seems like a lot until you consider that you don’t work every day and must pay for your own equipment and insurance, and cover taxes to boot. Being a freelance photojournalist is not for the faint of heart and takes financial discipline. It’s feast or famine – definitely not a steady nine-to-five job.
