As a photographer you could be self-employed or work for a company. One of the most attractive things about a photography career can be the variety and opportunity to work in different settings. You might take portraits, or work at weddings, in fashion, journalism or art, to name just a few examples.

Studying at The Manchester College has furthered my knowledge of photography and I’ve learnt a lot on my course. It has been really enjoyable and has helped me develop as a photographer and work to a professional standard. I would like to study photography at university, and it’s then my intention to travel and photograph the world.
