    It's an unanswerable question since there's no context.

    Hello,

    Awesome question but your question seems to broad since there is so many opportunities in photography. There is Landscape, People, Macro, Journalism, Sports, Astro and many more subjects that can be photographed. May I suggest maybe looking at the list of threads on the front page of the forum, especially in the photo gallery box. There are many interest/types of photography in which photographers submit there work and you can find it there. Please feel free to elaborate on your question so that we can possibly direct you to the information you are looking for. Also, I see this is your first post, welcome to the forum!

    Hi welcome
    Point and shoot, phone, film, digital
    As you can see from the various posts your question needs to be more specific
    Are you talking subject , style, equipment, modern, traditional,

    Maybe you mean 4 types of photographer? There are four types of photographer - which type are you? — Photocritic Photo School If you mean photography you will see numbers ranging from 15 to 60 types with new "specialties" created all the time. For example, when I first got involved in photography decades ago one didn't see photographers specializing in engagement or pregnancy shots, it was all portrait or events photography. Personally, I like Nikon's categories of People and Events, Travel and Landscape, Sports and Action, Nature and Wildlife, Macro and Close Up, Video, Specialty. I add Astrophotography, but you can consider it a specialty.
