Couldn't see transport there, which might subdivide into rail, aviation, maritime, airshow, not sure what terms people normally use.

Which overlaps with event photography and equestrian photography.

You forgot crap photography, which is often mistaken for fine art photography - particularly by the photographer.

I see some of the obvious ones have still not been found:
colour photography
digital photography
low-light photography

Isn't it amazing how many types there are? Once we've got a complete list I'm going to check how many different types I've done LOL.

Just to be really picky, and more to squeeze one in through the side door, I believe Micro photography is different to photomicrography

isn't there a fancy word for aereal photography ??? Someone mentioned it to me once, but forgot about it. Think it wasn't used for "landscape" photography from the air, but rather to "map" the surface through photos.
Anyone ?
