What Are the Education Requirements for a Successful Aerial Photography Career?

A good grasp of basic and advanced photography techniques is usually necessary in order to stat an aerial photography career. Individuals interested in pursuing this profession should consider earning a degree in photography. Most art schools and technical schools, as well as traditional universities, offer photography degree programs. Research photography schools to find what make best sense for your career direction.

Aspiring aerial photographers who wish to operate their own aircrafts should also take the necessary steps in order to do so. They should get their pilot's license, for example, which will usually take several hours of training and flight experience.

Some aerial photographers might also need additional training or schooling, depending on their individual career goals. Those interested in aerial photography careers for the purposes of making maps, for instance, should earn degrees in cartography, or map making.

What is the Average Annual Salary of an Aerial Photographer?

Since it is a type of specialty photography, predicting the average salary of an aerial photographer can be somewhat difficult. The Bureau of Labor Statistics does not collect data specific to aerial photographers, but according to this organization, traditional photographers made an average salary of $35,980 in 2010. Scientific and technical photographers made an average salary of $32,630 in that same year. Also, aerial photographers interested in mapmaking may be interested in knowing that cartographers and photogrammetrists made an average salary of $60,970.

Predicting the salaries of aerial photographers focusing on the artistic element of this type of photography can be very difficult. Some of these types of photographers may never make any money from their photographs, for instance, while others may be able to make a more than reasonable wage
