A medical photography uses the skills and knowledge they have learned during college to accurately and objectively photograph current injures of patients, post-mortem bodies, medical and surgical procedures, medical devices, and specimens from autopsy. Usually a Bachelor’s degree is required along with a year internship and certification from the BioCommunications Association’s Board of Registry. This specialized branch of photography earns a median salary of $31,710 per year.
A medical photographer, also called a biomedical photographer, is a skilled individual who has both artistic creativity and a detailed knowledge of scientific processes, anatomy and physiology. Medical photographers can find a wide range of career options at medical schools, hospitals, research centers, publishing companies, advertising agencies, pharmaceutical manufacturers and other health-based organizations. It’s an exciting career for those who excel in both art and science.
