The average annual salary for a salaried celebrity photographer is around $35,000.00 per year if they're hired by some celebrity gossip magazine or news site.

So that means they would get a salary for going out and taking pictures of the celebrities so that the gossip websites such as TMZ or other news and gossip shows and websites would have those celebrity photos to post to their website or in their magazine or show them on television.

But some celebrity photographers only work on commission which means they have to take the photographs of the celebrities and hope that some news magazine or new outlet will buy the photos from them.

The photos can sell for $200.00 each or as much as $1,000.00 each depending on how bad the place wants the photo.

Good day. I agree with previous answer. There can be different salaries according to skills, popularity and experience. It is always was interesting for me who makes such photos like on site. What is your opinion?

I like to read how famous people made their fortune. There are a lot of magazines online about Celebrity Net Worth, their luxurious lives and stuff like that. It's all quite interesting and helps me learn something new for myself. Although unfortunately not everyone can have that kind of success.
