How much can I make in a Career in Photography?

Career in Photography

There are many nuances of a Career in Photography. For me understanding Why I want to choose a Career in Photography is phenomenally more important than figuring out How to get into Photography. It had been a while since I was researching about a Career in Photography, when I came across:

Career Video on Photography

In a video, Anant Singh has talked about various aspects of a Career in Photography. Anant Singh started by explaining Photography as: "Photography is the science, art, application and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film." The video gave me so much food for thought.

I found the video unique because it talked about Education in terms of things which can be learnt from books, to excel at a Career in Photography and not as a list of Qualifications, which one needs to get into Photography. Anant Singh touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:

  • Lighting
  • Types of Photography

Anant Singh then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Photography:

  • Observation
  • Patience
  • Creativity
  • Positive Atitude
  • Eagerness to Learn
  • Anticipation
  • Expressiveness
