As a photographer you could work anywhere and be responsible for immortalising some of the most beautiful or powerful moments in the world. Or you could be snapping some of the most special moments in people’s lives, like their wedding or birthday. Or maybe you’ll be a high-fashion photographer, getting the cover shot for a glamorous magazine.
There are an array of different areas of photography that you could go into and it’s a career choice that will allow you to truly pursue your interests and passions.
Most photographers will either be freelance or work in a studio. In a studio you may have the equipment provided for you, but as a freelancer you will need to have your own equipment.
You can be somewhat flexible with photography work although the income can also be very unstable. You’ll be paid hourly, or by the project, and very few photographers will have a salary.
You could work strange hours and will likely be required to travel between locations (unless you work within a studio).
Although photography can be about self-expression, you will also most likely have to work to a client brief, so being able to take direction whilst putting your own creative spin on an idea is often a delicate balance for photographers.
