I talked about how being a photographer are very important on my last blog, on this blog, I will share with you the perks and benefits of being a photographer. There are so many perks it outweigh any bad. Photography actually provides a wide scope of career opportunities particularly in the field of journalism. These might also include travel opportunities, capturing unique or high profile images.

Traveling was the greatest perks for me as a photographer. I have been in 32 states within 6 years of being here in Missouri. Most of the reason to travel because my love of photography and my family who loved to travel. Whenever theres is a holiday or just a simple four days weekend, I will be out somewhere in different states I have never been to and most of my friends will find out later that night through my pictures that I post in social media.

Working with awesome people whenever I took pictures. I will just see students randomly smile at me, even when I don’t have my camera with me. Some of the friendly athletes would come and asked if I took a good pictures of them during the game. working with Newspaper and the Yearbook even adds more benefits to my plate. Everyone would come to me and ask questions about camera or maybe want me to take their pictures sometimes. Once you take a good photos, that photographer title will just stuck with you and the whole campus will known you by that.

As a photographer, I have a great freedom to express my creativities. I love innovation and finding new perspective on any of my pictures. It amazed me every time when I took a pictures on the angle that I never took before. Learning camera has no limits, there are more things your camera can do than you know, you just have to spent more time with your camera.

Satisfaction  

I love to see people’s expression  when they see my pictures. Good or bad, doesn’t matter if I can get whats in my head to the pictures that I took then I am very well satisfy. Looking back from today, I can see how much progress I have made since the beginning of my career.

Rewarding

Photography is not only a creatively and professionally rewarding job, but also a monetarily beneficial one. The pay package of photographers is one of the best compared to several other professions. Further, photographers also have the independence to freelance or have their own studios. With a little business aptitude, photographers can run a successful business of their own.
