Photographer

[fuh-tog-ruh-fer]

A photographer is a person who takes a photograph using a camera. A professional photographer uses photography to make a living.

Photographers are often categorized based on the subjects they photograph. Some photographers explore subjects typical of paintings such as landscape, still life, and portraiture. Other photographers specialize in subjects unique to photography, including street photography, documentary photography, fashion photography, wedding photography and commercial photography.

Paparazzi are photographers who do candid photography of celebrities. The distinction between artistic photography and photojournalism or other types of photography and the associated techniques does not remove this personal aspect from the work of the great photographers.
