I am a photographer. I do weddings, portrait sessions, and portraiture, and I get paid to take photos of my clients for them. I’ve done both commercial and personal assignments for magazines, websites, and more.
Not only are many of those jobs pay, but they can be very rewarding. The opportunity that a photographer has to spend time with clients and create images in a non-traditional manner could be a rare opportunity for just about anyone. With the internet, anyone can have a job online.
Because of the internet, there is a new crop of work out there for those who want to make money taking photos. The most popular website for taking photos is Flickr, so that is where they are likely to get their best work. There are many paid sites as well, but you can generally find a good opportunity on one of the sites that are a little more popular.
For example, a site called Fotolia.com hosts thousands of photos of New York City taken by thousands of photographers. Other options include Fotocam, Fotohub, and Flickr. However, these three sites are the best and most comprehensive for finding good photography opportunities. There are other sites that specialize in photography-related subjects such as PhotoBucket, and Photoblog.
These sites are a bit outdated and might not be the best for finding good photography jobs as they don’t often have a lot of listings. That said, they do a good job at sorting through the listings to find the best sites that match your criteria.
Of course, not all photographers can say they are the best. Some are just the best at what they do. To rank in the top 10, it is important to have a good portfolio and to have good communication skills. Also, it is important to have a good understanding of the field to ensure that you have the right skills and experience to work in that field. To get into the top 10, you should make sure that you have a portfolio that is at least six to eight years old.
I think my portfolio at the moment is pretty good, but don’t get me wrong, I still have a lot to learn. I definitely need to improve my communication skills and learn how to properly use a camera. But, I have a pretty good idea of what I might want to do. I might be a little vague in my descriptions, but that’s better than nothing.
Photography is not just a hobby. I don’t mean to be harsh, but photography is quite literally a skill that you have to learn. You have to be able to focus, take a photo, and use a tool (a flash, camera, etc) to create something that is worth putting on the web. In order to become a good photographer you will also need to learn how to use a camera, learn how to take good photos, and learn how to edit photos.
I hear you and I know it sounds like a lot of stuff, but there are tons of jobs in photography. And we’ve had a lot of people asking about them, so I figured i’d give you a quick rundown of what to do.
Some of the best photography jobs are in New York, and I’ve been to many of those locations. What makes New York so good is that there are a lot of really great places to work. In fact, I would be a liar if I said I was going to New York just for the jobs.
