Photographer/Photo Editor

Bookmark This


Photo editors work for website, magazine or book publisher. Responsible for selecting, editing, positioning and publishing photos to accompany the text of a publication. Photo editors also might supervise staff photographers, give photo assignments and make sure that others complete their work on time.
Photo editors might meet with managers to discuss what types of pictures are needed for a certain project and then give out photo assignments to their staff. After the pictures are taken, the photo editor typically looks the pictures over and if changes are needed, alters the photos accordingly.

You may be part of a photography staff to take photos. However, you might be responsible for taking your own photos or use photo stock agencies to purchase pictures to meet the needs of the project. Additional duties of a photo editor might include training new staff members, ordering supplies for the photo department and making sure that the cameras and other equipment are working properly.
