You have to get the "High-End Digital Camera" Heirloom to unlock it first. You can get that by completing the Photography Quest within the next 3 days. It should be in your Quest option.

There's a quest you need to complete in order to get the heirloom to unlock it.
I made one of my sims to dance in the club to gain XP and get higher level. Then I choose the longest time to him to work cause I want to sleep. This morning, his progress is still around 7 hours! Is it a bug? Or because I make him dance all night long? please someone answer this.
If you quit one career and go too another, will you loose all progress if you wanted to go back too the first career or will you just take from where you left off?
