Query received from a student:
Are there any courses that teach you photography? How does one pursue this as a career?
Vinod (Kolkata)

Reply from our FutureMap counsellor:
Dear Vinod,
Photography is an art form; a medium in which to express ideas, so the eye, the brain and the mind are the tools that make you a good photographer. To become a successful photographer you need to use your common sense and work closely with other photographers. A professional photographer can work as an advertisement photographer, industrial photographer, fashion photographer, fine arts photographer and forensic photographer or as a freelance photographer in India. A wide range of opportunities are available in India where people appoint professional photographers to cover weddings, birthdays, festivals, and many important private events. A freelance photographer can also sell photographs to various journals, magazines, news channels and newspaper houses.

There are lot of institutes who are offering photography course. You can choose diploma, certificate or photography as one of the subject in a degree course. Post Graduate Certificate Course in Photography Design is offered by National Institute of Design, A three-year diploma in motion picture photography is offered by the Film and Television Institute, Pune, while the Mass Communication Research Centre (MCRC), Jamia Millia Islamia, Delhi offers a 2-year post-graduate diploma in motion picture photography to graduates in any discipline. Most BFA or Applied Art Courses impart specialized training in photography. Indian Institute of Mass Communication, New Delhi offers basic courses in Photography.
