Do you like being creative and looking at the world with an artistic perspective? Do you also like taking pictures? If so, then a career as a photographer is something that you may want to consider pursuing.
Depending on your interests and career goals, there are a variety of options available for photographers. One option is to be a lifestyle photographer. This can include wedding photography, family portraits, maternity sessions, and photos of children. The wedding industry can be very lucrative, especially if you are willing to travel, but you have to remember that you will be sacrificing many of your weekends during the peak seasons.
Another option is to pursue photojournalism. This is especially popular for photographers who work for or with magazines and news publications, and the work covered can range from war to weather to sporting events.
Perhaps you want to pursue fashion photography and work on developing the campaigns for some of the hottest brands. Yet another path involves commercial photography. These photos are featured in many of the advertisements you see in magazines, billboards, and online.
