Cinematographers and Directors of Photography

High School

You should take courses that will prepare you for college, such as math, English, government, and foreign language. Courses in English composition and literature will give you a background in narrative development, and art and photography courses can help you understand the basics of lighting and composition. A broadcast journalism or media course may give you some hands-on experience in camera operation and video production. Some high schools offer video production and film courses.
