Many photographers rely on public relations work or corporate photography for a large bulk of their assignments. They are often hired by the public relations department of a corporation to take formal portraits of executives or shoot photos to accompany a press release or for use on a Web site or in brochures. Photographers are often hired to document special events such as the opening of a new facility, a community event, or a corporate-sponsored charitable event. Some photographers may be asked to film an event for use in a video or Internet release.
