What would you say "He likes photography" or "he likes the photography"? Neither of them sounds good to me. Can you help me?
 
It is a sentence one of my students wrote in his composition and I am not sure about the correctness of it.

""He likes photography ""is the correct one in case  what your student means is photography in general; whereas, he likes the photography is used to talk about a particular type of photography or someone s particulay photography. :)

"he likes photography" refers to the activity, "he likes the photo" refers to a special picture.

It should be "He likes photography". If you want to use "He likes the photography..." you MUST specify. Example: He likes the photography style of Jason Jones. (Bit awkward sounding though to me, and Id probably not use it.)
