The talent and skills of a studio artist can be appreciated in so many places outside of an art gallery. Captivating billboards, appealing window displays and custom-painted automobiles are just a few examples of studio artists at work. Successful artists learn a broad range of artistic skills that lead to an array of artistic vocations. These skills, however, are first attained in the studio classroom.
Professional photographers are employed in a variety of settings. Studio photographers capture objects, individuals and set-ups in a controlled lighting environment. Documentary photographers record events as they occur. Commercial photographers capture images that may be used for personal broadcasting, as in weddings, or for public promotion of consumer items, as in advertisements.
