Some specialize in photographing people, while others may specialize in photographing landscapes, merchandise, animals, events, or other subjects. Talented photographers are in demand in many fields. The industries with the highest concentration of employment in this occupation include professional, technical and scientific services; radio and television broadcasting; independent artists, writers, and performers; newspaper, periodical, book, and directory publishers, and scenic and sightseeing transportation, water.

After Odd School placed 21st on our 2014 Top 100 International Animation Schools list, we reached out for an interview to learn more about their small but tremendously successful school in Lisbon, Portugal. We were so impressed that we asked them to stay in touch so that we could show our readers what their current students were working on.
