Job Hunting on Indeed
Automotive Photographer & Merchandising Specialist
The requirements for this Photography job is just to have a drivers license. It is preferred to have one year in Automotive and Merchandising and to also have a Highschool degree or equivalent. In this job they work closely with cars to help dealerships make an online presence. They want to have the cars looking eye catching and to make it very easy for the dealership customers to find. I personally am very interested in this due to my love for cars and how I can practically know what’s going on with a car just by hearing how it sounds.
Canon Lens Experience
Peter R Miller is a sports photographer and learning about his experiences inspired me due to the love of sports and how he was able to capture amazing moments throughout sport history. To catch the “perfect score” in action is really something special to behold and he was excellent at it. Some moments he had seem like they were adrenaline pumping moments which in my opinion can be exciting at times.
Another experience i liked to read about was Joe Buissink which he captured beautiful wedding photos. A wedding is a special moment where two people come together to be one with one another, and Buissink knows exactly how to capture that. His work inspires me due to how beautiful each photo is and what a wonderful moment it must be.

Why Photography is important to me
Photography is important to me because it can show series of events and also it can show history. Photography can tell an entire story with one photo, which I find truly beautiful! This is why photography is important to me.
Critique of Silver List Photographers
The first photographer i looked at was Andre Ramos. His page was very interesting, the titles of his art work certainly shocked me, but his page was very difficult for me to navigate through.
The second photographer i looked at was Skikeith. His page was easier for me to navigate through and the art work interested me with all that it had, i enjoyed how he had more than one page to look at.
B&H Shopping Spree
If I had 10,000 $ to spend on photography equipment this is what I would buy.
Canon EOS R5 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 24-105mm f/4L Lens and Memory Card Kit= 5,299$
Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM Lens = 2,449$
And that would be it.
Some reasons why a photographer would be the best job is because one you get to be your own boss, you can take any photos without anyone telling you otherwise and you are free to do what you like. Another reason why photography would be a great job is because its so accessible to take photos even if you have to use your phone. Another final reason to me would be the amount of freedom you gain from being a photographer. The freedom you gain as a photographer is like none other, you are able to do what you like and when you like and etc… everything would be based around you.
