It was never a issue in film days, 150,000 shots would bankrupt you with developing and printing costs, shooting 100 images for a wedding was a lot. Photographers were careful to get just the right poses.
Now, it costs nothing to take 500 or 1000 shots, my wife and I have taken 2500 of some events. This means that for busy photographers who take 2000 or more a week, that adds up to 100,000 a year, often more.
For enthusiasts, 2500 shots a year is often a figure I've seen, but even 10,000 a year is a lot for a non professional. If you are using a camera so heavily, lots of things will wear out besides the shutter, its a very low cost per exposure. If a 1000 dollar camera is used for 150,000 images, it costs 3/4 cents a shot, and even then, the camera will have some used value.
