: Photographers use cameras to record people, places, and events on film. Most specialize in commercial, portrait, or journalistic photography. Commercial photographers may take school or wedding pictures or photos for ads. Portrait photographers work in studios, taking pictures of people for special occasions. Journalistic photographers work for newspapers and magazines.
