Select, Find and Prepare for Photography Careers and Jobs - all on one page


Here is a quick 3-minute Helper Video External Link.

This page will take you through 4 steps to (1) Select from Photography careers/jobs, (2) Find Photography job listings, (3) Prepare for Photography careers, and (4) Provide Photography career-specific resources.

Step 1: Select a Career/Job: This page starts with 4 ways for you to identify and select from listings of Photography careers/jobs:
A) Fastest Growing Photography Careers - 2020 to 2030 (est.)
These listings are based on job growth estimates and helps you to identify the fastest growing and evolving Photography careers. Some careers may not initially seem related to Photography, so relevant Photography jobs are listed alongside each listing. This can also help us to identify which careers (bottom of the listing) may have negative growth - perhaps due to automation or planned obsolescence.
B) Median Annual Salary U.S. Photography Careers
These listings are sorted (descending) by median annual salary in the U.S. This may help us to identify our ideal career. We may not qualify at this time for the desired career, but this listing and the results provided can help us to explore job details, as well as learn how to appropriately prepare for the career.
C) Photography Career Ladders (Educational Requirements)
These listings will help us to identify Photography careers sorted by educational requirements (with the most difficult to obtain listed first). This may help us to identify career ladders (as we scroll down the list), and help us to get jobs that we qualify for now.
D) Select From a Listing of 116 Photography Jobs.
The list may be quite long. There are two ways you might like to use this list:
1) Filter - As you enter a word, you will filter (limit) the list of jobs
2) Browse the list (Don't Filter) - You can simply explore the list of jobs. There may be many that you might never have considered to be of interest.
Once you have identified an job of interest, simply click on it.

Step 2: Find a Job: After you have selected a career/job above, you will see current jobs listings. You can change the location, distance from location and recency as desired. Each of the listings will link to a current job opening.

Job listings (based on your criteria) can be sent daily to your inbox, so you always have access to the latest opportunities. Complete the short form to start - you can opt out anytime.

Step 3: Prepare For a Career: In this section you will gain access to detailed information to help you prepare for the chosen career. Information may include (not every career choice includes all of the elements below - updates occur quarterly):
