To tell a story in images, to capture a mood forever, to showcase perfection—that’s photography. In today’s increasingly visual world, the demand for quality photography is growing. And the applications of this field are equally vast. From food and product photography, to lifestyle and portraits, or even photojournalism, the master photographer creates works of art through his or her lens.
It’s a flexible and competitive field. A photographer can work solo in-studio, or in the thick of things at simchas and social events. There’s opportunity for travel and food styling. It can be an exciting career path—always a happy moment to capture, a new horizon to explore, capturing life in all its full-flavored glory. Those with an eye for detail will do very well here, noticing the small things that make up a beautiful whole.
Photographers work in a range of areas, including commercial, product and portrait settings. They can begin working at an average starting salary of $25 per hour. An experienced photographer can earn over $50,000, while successful photographers can earn over $100,00, depending on the quality of their work. Photographer salaries for job postings in the NY/NJ areas are 36% higher than the national average.
