Employment

About 11% of camera and photographic equipment repairers are self-employed.

Major employers:

  • Camera repair shops
  • Electronics stores

Outlook

There is little job growth expected in this occupation. Demand is limited as fewer people own cameras. This is because many phones now have good cameras built in.

Despite limited growth, openings will occur as current workers leave this occupation.
