Naturalist
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

So you want to be a Photographer

Photography is everywhere - on ads, posters, billboards, and in magazines and newspapers, encompassing just about every subject, from food to high fashion.

Photographers, as a result, can find a career in a variety of fields, but all photographers require a blend of artistic and technical skills. Just like these, er, memes in their honour.

In the past two decades, technology has transformed photography as quick as a flash (pun intended). For the most part, gone are the days of developing film in a darkroom to instantaneously seeing a shot image on a digital camera. Software, such as Photoshop, can help photographers fine tune the perfect shot, and to professional photographers, Instagram doesn’t count.

A day in the life of a photographer depends on their field of work. Wedding photographers, for example, may find themselves busy every Saturday in June, whereas photojournalists go where and when the news takes them. A photography career can be as much of a lifestyle as it is a job.

The starting salary for photographers tends to be on the lower end of the pay scale, but as their experience increases and portfolio of work improves, their compensation certainly can grow, as well.
