Experience is an important factor influencing the compensation of Photography Directors.

Photography Directors bring in $84K after working for 10 to 20 years. Individuals who have achieved more than 20 years of experience don't seem to earn much more than people who have 10 to 20 years under their belts; the more senior group reports an average income of $105K.
