Documentary photography usually refers to a popular form of photography used to chronicle significant and historical events. It is typically covered in professional photojournalism, or real life reportage, but it may also be an amateur, artistic, or academic pursuit. The photographer attempts to produce
truthful, objective, and usually candid photography of a particular subject
most often pictures of people.

Fine Art Photography
photography created in accordance with the vision of the artist as photographer. There is a subjective intent of the artist in each image.
An editorial photographer provides images for magazines, newspapers, books, websites or other editorial material, rather than corporate branded material. The most important difference between editorial photography and other types of photography is the element of usage.
involves taking pictures for commercial use: for example in adverts, merchandising, and product placement. Commercial photography is also used in corporate brochures and leaflets, menus in cafes and restaurants, and similar commercial uses where photographs enhance a text. Commercial photography is used to promote or sell a product or service. There are a number of ways that photographs can be used to better market products and corporations. For photographers who excel at commercial photography, it can be a very lucrative market, and the field of commercial photography is broad, with room for traditional and alternative photographs.
