The Industry

Are you looking for photography internships or entry level photography jobs? Generally, photographers take photos of places, events, and people. If you enjoy traveling as well as documenting an area’s landscape, culture, and customs, you should look into becoming a travel photographer. Working for a company or as a freelancer, your main duty is to take photos in still frames using cameras and other photo equipment. Photographers also develop most of their own film in a darkroom. As a freelance photographer, you’ll find work by advertising or networking. You may spend a good amount of time traveling for news stories, weddings, and other events.

The Internship

Photography internships are particularly common during the summer. Many times you can get a photography assistant job or a paid photography internship to improve your shooting techniques and photo-editing skills. The position may teach you basic fundamentals such as how to better frame your subject, or how to communicate specific poses for that perfect shot. In addition to demonstrating an attention to detail, photographers also use many editing programs. Some of the most common editing applications include Adobe’s Photoshop and Lightroom, Corel PaintShop Pro, and free options like Google Photos and GIMP.

The Career Options

Photographers can work in many different fields and often choose an area of specialization. The reason for that is because each field requires specific knowledge of different light settings and equipments. For example, photojournalists take photos of current events for websites, TV stations, newspapers, and magazines. Portrait photographers take pictures of people and events, and you may work out of a studio or travel. Wedding photographers often present their photos in an album and may also provide framing services. Astrophotographers may spend the entire night waiting for the perfect milkyway shot.

Many photographers are self-employed, which involves additional responsibilities associated with running a business. As a photographer, you may choose to conduct workshops or teach photography classes as well to supplement your income.

The Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of photography jobs is expected to grow about 3% over the next decade, which is slower than average.
