Sports Photographers

Advancement Prospects

Sports photographers advance by selling their work to highly respected publications (such as Sports Illustrated) and commanding more pay for their work. Some photographers become so well known for their work that they are requested by news organizations to shoot international or national sports events, such as the Olympics or the Super Bowl, year after year. Some sports photographers become photo editors or managers at their newspaper or magazine. Others teach photography classes.
