A day in the life of a Photojournalist.
If you are thinking about going around town photographing all sorts of assignments: from weddings to public events, providing visuals for breaking, features and/or spot news– remember: It isn’t a glamorous job.
Often photojournalists have to meet tight deadlines, with little or no time to edit their work. It is a demanding profession where precision, quickness and accuracy are the norm.
However, photojournalists love what they do.
That’s what differentiates the professional photojournalists from any other type of photographers.
And then there’s the gear of course.
In this video slide show photojournalist Mikael Kjellstrom shares his impressions on the job. Kjellstrom covered six assignments, including spot news– all on the same day.
If you want to pursue photojournalism, there are a few things you might want to consider.
Take your time.
