Sports photography

Sports photography can range from the very simple to the extremely complex. There are many factors that need to be considered when determining what type of sports photography you will be shooting, but there are also many opportunities for success.

A few examples of sports photography include:

  • A high school basketball player is fouled as he attempts a shot in front of his hometown crowd

  • A college football team runs onto the field for their homecoming game against their rival school

  • Two UFC fighters face off in the octagon before a packed house at Madison Square Garden

Street photography

If you're a fan of documentary photography, street photography is a must-try. Street photography is a type of documentary that usually involves shooting in public places and capturing moments that happen spontaneously. It's all about the relationship between the photographer and their subject—there isn't any set plan or schedule for when to take pictures. In fact, some street photographers will wait months before they decide to shoot something on their camera!

Landscape photography

Landscape photography is a broad category of photography that captures the beauty of nature. The most common landscapes are mountains, rivers, lakes, forests and other natural formations. Landscape photographers take pictures of these and other natural scenes with a wide-angle lens.

School, personal and event photography

The opportunities for photography are endless. School and event photography is where you can make a lot of money, but there are other ways to make a living with your camera. You can shoot portraits of people at events, birthday parties, weddings and family reunions. If you want to do this type of work professionally then I suggest buying a DSLR camera with interchangeable lenses so that you can capture images in low-light situations such as at night clubs or concerts.

Product and e-commerce photography

You will also need to understand the different types of product photography. Product photography can be broken into three categories:

  • Product

  • Full-length shots of products

  • Close-up shots of products (often called detail photos)

  • Flat lays/product sets (an assembly or arrangement of multiple items on a flat surface)

There is great opportunity in commercial, creative, and corporate photography.
