-Photography is the art of making images by the use of recording light or other electromagnetic radiation. Photography is a word that came from the Greeks.φωτός (phōtos), genitive of φῶς (phōs), "light" and γραφή (graphé) "representation by means of lines" or "drawing", together meaning "drawing with light".

-Photography is used to capture special moments, tell stories, preserve memories, and send messages and a source of entertainment. Photography is also used for data storage, recognition, and surveillance.

- All industries use photography in some way. Industries like a web design, advertising, sports, fashion industries and more.

- Different types of typography would be Architectural, Fashion, Nature, Underwater, Landscape, Wedding, Wildlife, Food, and more.

- The skills required for jobs and/or professions would be different. If you wanted to work at an advertisement industry, you would need to produce images such as packshot’s since you need them to illustrate and sell.
