Photographer (Photography)

Much more than simply pointing and shooting, a photographer’s work will rarely start and end at the click of a button. While technical know-how and a sharp eye are key, much time can be spread across planning, budgeting, researching, test shooting, sourcing a team, liaising with a client, and finally, editing. 

With one approach varying greatly from the next, different forms of photography might be defined by equipment (such as aerial or macro photography); to context (including photojournalism, still life, fine art, commercial, portrait, documentary or street photography); to a particular industry, event or point of interest (such as fashion, food, automotive, wedding, travel, entertainment, music, architectural, interiors or sports – right up to medicine, nature and science).

Please Note: The world of creative careers is broad and ever-evolving. While our descriptions aim to capture the essence of a role, we appreciate that no two jobs will be the same. We’re always looking to grow, expand and add to these roles, so if you feel we are missing something please let us know!
