Photography by Emma Garrison

Photographers are people that use technical expertise, creativity, and composition skills to capture images that tell a story.
You must have a high school diploma or equivalent in order to be a photographer. The training they have is long-term and is done on the job.
The conditions vary for each photographer and their specialties. Some photographers travel to different parts of the world for photoshoots, some work in laboratories and use microscopes to photograph subjects, and others work in their studios.
There are lots of possibilities for employment. For example, people hire photographers to take wedding photos, family photos, and many other important events. On the other hand, most companies contract with freelancers rather than hire their own professional photographer.
Employment is projected to grow 3 percent from 2014-2024 which is slower than the average for all occupations.
In 2015 the median hourly wage was $15.24 and per year it was $31,710.
