Professional photographers are employed in either portrait photography or commercial photography. Portrait photography concentrates on photographing people in the studio or on location. Commercial photography concentrates on photographing objects in the studio or on location.
Commercial photographers must be open to relocation to a larger metropolitan area.
Portrait photography provides more mobility when seeking employment opportunities since portrait studios are found in almost any size city. Many past graduates own their own studios.
