About photography

Photography Jobs Overview

Pictures are more than just visual depictions. They tell a story, provide visual references, and report what goes on in the world. From weddings to world-changing events, photographers with a good eye for the lens capture the moments that matter the most. Photography jobs are perfect for candidates who know how to capture the world in the best light.

As a photographer, you'll take on a variety of duties. That includes using lighting and photographic techniques to capture high-quality photos. You'll also use photo-enhancing software to touch up images in post-production and market yourself to reach potential clients. When you set up photoshoots, you'll scout locations, consult with clients, discuss clients' needs, and determine what type of equipment you need.

Photographer Training and Skills

A photography job doesn't necessarily require formal education. However, many employers prefer candidates who have completed a photography degree or vocational training. Photography courses should cover photography fundamentals, lighting techniques, digital editing, and business and marketing basics.

Depending on which field of photography you plan on going into, you may need specialized training. For example, if you plan on working in medical, biological, or scientific photography, you'll likely need some knowledge in those area. Photojournalism jobs often require a college degree with coursework in photography and journalism. Photographers who operate drones must pass an aeronautical knowledge exam and become certified with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). See Monster's article on how to become a photographer for better insight on the skills and requirements you need.

Most employers hire photographers with the following skills and qualities:

  • A good eye for color, shades, light, distance, and other aesthetic elements.
  • Attention to detail, especially during post-production.
  • Good computer and photo-editing software skills.
  • Business and customer service skills.
  • Interpersonal and communication skills.

Read our photographer job description sample for a glimpse of the skills and qualifications required to succeed as a photographer.

Update Your Photographer Resume

Before you start applying for photography positions, make sure your resume and portfolio are up to date. To get an idea of what your resume should look like, take a look at Monster’s photography resume sample. This will give you a comprehensive view of how to format your resume and where to list your experience and credentials. You’ll also need a well-written cover letter to be considered for a photography position. If you’re not sure how to write one, we’ve got you covered. Read our photographer cover letter sample to learn how to demonstrate your skills and competency to potential employers.

Getting into a photography job often requires you to provide a portfolio of work. Be sure to share a website displaying the photos you've taken with potential employers. Learn how to show instead of tell by reading our article on building an eye-catching professional portfolio.

Interviewing for a Photography Job

Are you nervous about an upcoming interview? Not sure what questions you'll encounter or what to say? A picture is worth a thousand words. When you meet with a potential employer, you'll have an opportunity to discuss your work and show your portfolio. Additionally, Monster has a comprehensive list of common asked job interview questions and tips on devising strong answers that show that you're a competent candidate. As a photographer, you may be asked such questions as:

  • What do you think makes a good picture?
  • How do you keep up with the changes in technology and photography techniques?
  • What interests you about photography?
  • Which editing software are you experienced with?

How Much Do Photography Jobs Pay?

Curious to know how much money photographers make? The median pay for photographers in the U.S. is $18.57 per hour. On the higher end, some photographers make more than $33 per hour. Find out how much money you can expect to earn in your area by searching Monster's Salary Calculator.
