This all-inclusive classification would include photographers, salespeople, drivers, and clerical workers. Photos and recordings may be done inside or outside, and would also include the work done by aerial photographers or videographers. Employees that engage in work related to photo development, photo processing, photo printing would also be included.
Work done will vary, but may include things such as pickup of film, delivery of prints, opening envelopes, tagging and/or clipping film, developing and printing pictures, checking, inspecting, and packaging finished work, and mailing photo products to customers.
