Note: The OES survey is designed to produce estimates by combining data collected over a three-year period. Median annual wage is adjusted for inflation. Data is unavailable for photographers for 2015-2017 and camera operators and film and video editors for 2017. These data are based on the “other information services” industry code, whose largest component is “internet publishing and broadcasting and web search portals.” See methodology for more details.
