(Newser) – Now that she's under dad's control, the world of Britney Spears seems to be a lot more stable these days—good news for those concerned about her well-being but not so good for the paparazzi. She's long been a cash cow for tabloids, but now photographers are getting tired of hanging around waiting for something, anything, to happen, Access Hollywood writes.

The number of photographers following Britney around has dwindled, and they find themselves working different hours as she stops spending late nights on the town. "The subject of the photo is just not as interesting as it once was, so the prices do go down," said the boss of a celebrity photo agency. "We're moving on to other celebrities. We’ve moved on to Britney’s sister."
