As a photographer you can be sure that no two days will be the same; one day you could be shooting in a studio, while another you could be on location in the Big Apple! It’s hardwork, but equally challenging.
Your work will involve producing images that communicate a specific message to the viewer. The images could be artistic, commercial or editorial and their content can represent anything from emotional moments and scenes of war, to landscapes and plates of food.
Typical work activities vary according to the specialism; however, common activities may include:
- working with clients to arrange photo shoots
- seeking subjects or locations
- arranging objects, scenes, props and backgrounds for shoots; directing models
- manipulating images with software to create desired or special effects
- managing the business including bookings, promotion and accounting.
In the industry today, the majority of professional photographers specialise and build a reputation in one area, for example, fashion, editorial, fine art, food or social photography.
Around half of all professional photographers are self-employed with the remainder working for a wide range of employers including creative businesses, publishers, photography agencies, or in the education or public sector.
Digital Photography, at Ravensbourne, will prepare you for a wide range of careers in digital photography and imaging. You will be equipped with all the knowledge and skills needed to master the production of digital images, including all necessary hardware to take and print images, and the software to edit and manipulate them.
