As a Photographer, your job is to take photos of people, events, places, objects, or animals for the public to see. Photographers can specialize in a certain area of photography, such as fashion, journalism, sport, or wildlife, or they can work as a general practitioner – these photographers offer their services for weddings, family photos, etc. Today, most Photographers use digital cameras for their work, since it allows for digital editing and easy online storage. Photographers have extensive knowledge regarding camera equipment since the quality of their photos rely on what camera model they are using, which lens is attached, and what accessories have been added. Photographers also use various software programs, like Photoshop, to edit their photos in creative and beautiful ways. If a Photographer is a freelancer or runs a private business, they usually manage a website so that the public is able to view and purchase their photos.
