Photography is the science, art and practice of creating durable images by recording light taking pictures. Photography is employed in many fields of science, manufacturing and business, as well as its more direct uses for art, film and video production, recreational purposes, hobby, and mass communication.


Although post secondary education is not required for portrait photographers, many take classes since employers usually seek applicants with a “good eye” and creativity, as well as a good technical understanding of photography. Photojournalists and industrial and scientific photographers often need a bachelor’s degree.


How much they make depend on what kind of photographer a person is. A full time pro gets anywhere from $25 hr to over $100 hours. The success depends on what you specialize in. If it is people you should name your company by your name and start taking pictures at $25 hour to start. You can have day rates of $350 for half day or $500 for a full day plus expenses. You may charge more if on location and not in studio.
