Photographers have lots of opportunities to travel and take some amazing photographs. Working on a cruise ship is one of the best ways to travel, as it gives a photographer a good income, as well as them having the chance to explore and see the world. There are lots of opportunities for good photographers to earn a living in this way.
If you would like to get into this industry, make sure you have a good portfolio. Ensure that many of the images are based around travel – if you haven’t done any professional travel photography work, try just taking your camera on holiday to get some portfolio shots. It is also helpful to make sure you have lots of examples of portraits and people photography, as much of the job will involve photographing the cruise guests.
Be prepared for some hard work – cruise ship photography is going to mean long and unsociable hours, and a lot of time spent at sea. However, you are probably already used to working long hours as a photographer!
