Photographer Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Photographer?

Photographer in Selkirk:
"Cost of living & Treatment."
Pros: Creative team of designers that work well together, friendly atmosphere from colleagues, always driving positive sales.
Cons: Lack of proper management in departments, all managers are power hungry which effects moral in the company. Lack of budgets in areas like photography for equipment to better the quality of the imagery. Low salary with no career development meetings to further your position within the company. Unprofessional, impartial HR Department. Those on low salaries (minimum wage, or close to Minimum wage) are treated with less respect than members of staff on higher salaries.

Photographer in Aylesbury:
"Make sure you have a direction before studying."
Art school is expensive. Work experience and mentoring are more effective tools to prepare you for industry and cost nothing. Get time in a busy studio. You'll learn how to light everywhere in most situations. A degree is nice to have but you'll be paying for it for a long time so make sure you factor that in.

Photographer in Manchester:
"Hardwork."
If you hardwork and focus on whatever work you do you can achieve your goals nothing is impossible in this world.
