Adults who wish to launch a career in photography may want to consider enrolling in a design program at an art school. Photographers held about 152,000 jobs during the 2008 fiscal year, and employment is expected to increase by 12 percent over the next eight years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

In order to gain inspiration, many photographers attend art galleries, such as theprintspace in East London. This August, the gallery will be showcasing a collection of images from world-renowned photographer Toby Smith.

Last winter, Smith spent three months in the Scottish Highlands working on a project to document the renewable energy industry. The photographs he chose to use in his final collection include panoramas of daytime scenery and nature images that are lit by moonlight. He also documented hidden underground tunnels and turbine halls.

His display at theprintspace will be the first selection if his images from The Renewables project series, which combines outdoor landscapes with sustainable energy structures.

The BLS reports that on average, photographers earned between $20,620 and $43,530 during the 2008 fiscal year. Entry-level positions in this field often require a college degree in photography or a similar subject.
