Forty-one years ago, the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard sourly prophesied a banal fate for the newly popularized art of photography. “With the daguerreotype,” he observed, “everyone will be able to have their portrait taken formerly it was only the prominent

If you want to pursue a photography career, you should research what education, training, or certifications you are required to receive before technically calling yourself a “certified professional photographer.” Education requirements for photographers Legally, there are not any training prerequisites required for photographers who want to start working with clients.
- Nikon D5600: With a 24-megapixel sensor and a touchscreen to make focusing and snapping a breeze, the Nikon D5600 is considered a good camera for any level photographer. It produces clear, sharp images while coming in at under $600. It also offers free Cloud storage and SnapBridge, allowing you to easily transfer photos to any mobile device via Bluetooth. The downside, though, is that despite video capabilities, this model doesn’t shoot in 4k.
- Nikon D3500: If you’re looking to spend a little less money, a similar option is the Nikon D3500. An entry-level digital shooting 24 megapixels, the D3500 is known for its Interactive 'Guide' shooting mode and intuitive sensor. Costing less than $500, it does lack a lot of features such as custom settings and a slower autofocus feature while in Live View. However, it’s tough to beat its combination of price and picture quality.
- Fujifilm X-T200: The X-T200 has a large, 3.5-inch display with a touchscreen in addition to physical controls. Another 24-megapixel sensor, the X-T200 is excellent for color, but its eye sensor isn’t the most reliable and the video feature lacks subject tracking (but does at least shoot in 4k). One of the best-rated digital cameras, the price tag is a bit higher at $700.
- Canon EOS M50: One of the most popular entry-level cameras is the Canon EOS M50 priced at around $650. With a 24-megapixel resolution and 3-inch display, this beginner model offers suggestions and explanations all within the settings menu. Focusing quickly, it’s great for action shots since it boasts the award-winning dual-pixel autofocus, though the lens range and short battery life leave something to be desired.
- Sony A6000: Considered a geriatric model, the Sony A6000 came out about five years ago but is still considered one of the better beginner cameras on the market. Though old, the autofocus system works quickly and, like the newer models on this list, has a 24-megapixel resolution, making it another good choice for those shooting sporting events or children. The video options, however, show the model’s age by only having capabilities of recording Full HD 1080p. Coming in at $449, the A6000 is a model that has withstood the test of time.
