The field of independent fashion photography can be a bit complicated, since it's a very small niche with big names in the industry. If you like fashion, this can be a career for life. Wedding photography is a popular photography career, and a beginner can earn more than £1000 a day and up to more than £5000 for an experienced wedding photographer. Portraits of family and children are also a great way to supplement income, and these can take the form of sessions of babies, pets, family members or couples.
Extremely popular but difficult to master, only a few photographers will be able to make a living from landscape photography. Architecture is another genre that most companies need photos of their building, both outside and inside. With the right contacts, you can make a career with just this genre. Delving into wildlife is expensive but rewarding once you do it, good glass is everything in wildlife photography.
The lenses can cost £1000, but if you get good results, wildlife sells well on stock imaging sites. Fine art and photojournalism are also in demand, as well as street monkey (black and white) and macro photography.
