He can work for all types of customers and business sectors, for example managing projects for press agencies, retailers and e-commerce manufacturers, magazines or communications agencies.

A make-up artist and hairdresser are sometimes present during photo shoots and advertising campaigns involving models. To develop his films, a Photographer may need to work with a photo laboratory.
