Online Colleges for Photography

Digital cameras and photo-editing software programs have transformed the world of photography and the way professors at photography colleges teach students. Although some old-school photographers may still resist the digital era, many have made the shift.

With its evolution into the technological world, photography has become a new field again in many ways and graduates of photography programs could stand out for their knowledge of the latest photography technologies. Photography degrees are available at the associate, bachelor's and master's levels. Certificates are also available and could be found through online photography programs. See online art colleges for more education options.

Career outlook for photographers

The photography field is competitive, but according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, those who stay up-to-date with new photography technologies could have improved job opportunities. Before starting a photography program, decide which area of photography to focus on. News photographers, magazine photographers and portrait photographers are well-known occupations. Perhaps less known are scientific photographers who capture medical and scientific-related photographs, and crime scene photographers who take pictures of crime scenes. According to May 2009 data from the BLS, more than 57,000 people worked as photographers in the U.S. and they earned mean annual wages of $36,370.
