Dear,
Welcome to CareerGuide.com.
I am happy to clear your career related doubts.

Photography is definitely a profession. What we see actually around us is not the truth. We see lot of people who are photographers. They take photographs of weddings, receptions and functions like that. Some take photographs of people. Some open photography studios. All these are career options which are available for decades. These can also be termed as profession because profession is occupation which gives you income. Then you are called professional.

But in today's competitive environment, people undermine these age old professions. They consider high earned jobs as profession. They think that profession is money spinner.

In reality, it is not like that. Profession is not just money spinner. Profession is life. profession is something in which the aspirant profess. Claims that he has the ability and show cases his ability. Whether it earns him lots of money or not, through his profession he is to be evolved. He is satisfied. He learns to life life through his profession.

If you want to take photography as a career, you should make sure that is the correct choice suitable for you. To make sure, you can take psychometric skill and aptitude tests available in this site. Once cleared you should be able to convince your parents about this. The following information should help you to do that.

Photo Journalism - This option provides you with opportunity in journalism field. This includes sports photography also.
Commercial Photography - Includes fashion, automobile trends, home decor, merchandise etc.
Advertising Photography- Creative and fabulous photography profession
Fashion Photography - Capturing the world of fashion
Wild life Photography - Draws inspiration from nature and animal kingdom
Travel photography - Provides you with lots of travel and adventires

All these fields offer lucrative income opportunities and provides you fun and adventure. Photography as a career comes out of passion. If you have it in you, if you are creative enough, if you have the third eye with you which can see something normal people cannot see, then Photography is the profession for you. If you are convinced yourself, it is easy for you convince your parents. So convince yourself first,

Good luck
