What Kind of Photographer Am I?

If you're a photographer, you've probably been asked this question: What do you shoot?


For photographers who shoot one type of subject matter, and only market themselves as such, the answer might be simple. "I'm a wedding photographer", or, "I'm a real estate photographer", or "I do studio portraits". And those are great answers; short, clear, and easy to understand. But I believe there are a large number of photographers, myself included, that find themselves evenly splitting their time between multiple genres - some that have very little to do with another. Before I go any further, let me try to clearly describe all the subject matter I like to photograph (some I do more than others).

  • Landscape Photography

  • Intimate Nature (textures, patterns, light, etc.)

  • Astrophotography (wide field & light DSO interest)

  • Wildlife Photography

  • Real Estate Photography

  • Portraiture (couples, families, etc.)

  • Weddings

  • Adventure Lifestyle Photography

  • Street Photography

  • Event Photography
