Authors Note

Photography is a means of taking pictures by using a camera, either digital or film. The art of photography is much more than just taking a picture or photograph. To differentiate a photographer from a hobbyist, a photographer must have an understanding of and an appreciation for the art, be technically efficient, and he must also know how to conceptualise ideas. Photography is a means of expressing a tangible thing or idea in an image. The 20th-century digital era brought many people into photography who would never have used a camera previously. Photography was an expensive investment, time consuming, and harmful because of the chemicals used to produce an image. It does not take more than one minute to produce an image with a camera in this century. An image can be uploaded to a computer or be printed within seconds after it is taken.

Such advancements have caused many amateur and professional photographers to gain much more exposure, mostly via the Internet. Any novice who wishes to pursue photography out of interest can easily teach himself and learn how to become better because of readily accessible information and affordable technology. Online art communities aid in the development of photographers, too. Photographers can market their work, sell their photographs and seek proposals from possible clients online.

The purpose of this research paper is to understand the stages that a professional photographer must today pass through before becoming qualified. How he learns or how he teaches himself may not relate to what is required of him to be a professional. One may be a professional but not a good photographer or vice versa. There are elements and factors that aid in the improvement of a photographer’s status or may lead to the decline in his career.

A number of professional photographers from the ages of 22 to 70 from Barbados and abroad were interviewed for this paper. Reading material proved to be scarce but the material from the interviews provided sufficient and beneficial information due to the many skill levels and experience, which helped in the structuring of this paper.
