Being a Photographer on a Cruise Ship | Shiplife TV

Episode 67: What it’s like working as a photographer on a cruise ship with Carlotta Vargas.

being a photographer on a cruise ship can be a very difficult job and it’s not exactly what most would expect. In many cases, it’s kind of like fast food photography which requires good technical use of cameras and lighting and memorization of a handful of poses.

Being a photographer on a cruise ship requires a lot of patience if you’re highly creative since most of the creativity goes out of the window in the general photographer position. There are other positions that allow more creativity such as private photographers, however, those positions are generally earned over time.

It’s not easy being a photographer on a cruise ship and it’s certainly not for everyone, however, it is recommended if you’re looking to expand your technical skills, resume, and travel the world.
