A photographer some say may not really require a resume when attending any interview. Some believe that samples of his photos speak volumes where his skills are concerned.
But in order to account for his/ her experience, knowledge and educational background, the resume is able to show where he/she has been lately as well as what he/she has been up to.
This will be helpful for you when applying for journalist jobs, photojournalism jobs, etc. A sample photographer resume is as shown below.
