Creative

Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be atrracted to the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design activities, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

So you want to be a Photographer

Photography is everywhere - on ads, posters, billboards, and in magazines and newspapers, encompassing just about every subject, from food to high fashion.

Photographers, as a result, can find a career in a variety of fields, but all photographers require a blend of artistic and technical skills. Just like these, er, memes in their honour.

For the most part, gone are the days of developing film in a darkroom to instantaneously seeing a shot image on a digital camera. Software, such as Photoshop, can help photographers fine tune the perfect shot, and to professional photographers, Instagram doesn’t count.

A day in the life of a photographer depends on their field of work. Wedding photographers, for example, may find themselves busy every Saturday in June, whereas photojournalists go where and when the news takes them. A photography career can be as much of a lifestyle as it is a job.

The starting salary for photographers tends to be on the lower end of the pay scale, but as their experience increases and portfolio of work improves, their compensation certainly can grow, as well.
