Today, Meero and Picter announced the results of the major survey conducted by the Kynos Institute and Claude Vauclare which provides a global overview of the profession of photographers and video makers.

This is the first time a study of this scale has been conducted. Commissioned by Meero and Picter, and independently carried out by the Kynos Institute and Claude Vauclare, the study attempts to obtain a complete overview of the status and challenges faced by today's photographers and videographers. 

From a base of 70 questions, the study focuses on the backgrounds, needs, and projects of these image professionals, as well as how they respond to the challenges of everyday life. 

Launched in October 2019, the survey received more than 5,000 responses from photographers and videographers from all over the world, making this the largest pool of respondents for a survey on photography.
