1 By: Nicole Morgan

2 Have a Bachelor’s degree in photography Recommended to have a background in art or graphic design Need the skills of writing, editing, and interviewing RIT, Boston University, and Corcoran College of Art and Design are the top colleges that offer photojournalism classes

3 Job employment is very competitive The average yearly salary for photojournalists employed by newspapers in 2004 was $32,800 (not a lot, but not poverty level) About $17.78 hourly wage Could work for magazines, newspapers, weddings, and can take photos of just about anything Age range normally younger

4 Margaret Bourke-White: TIME Magazine covers Stan Honda: Covered 9/11 events Eddie Adams & Carol Guzy: Pulitzer Prize Winners (Pulitzer Prize = award for achievement in journalism, drama, and music) <- Eddie Adams Margaret Bourke White->

5 Pros - being out in the community -getting to know people - travel - flexible hours Cons -dealing with bad weather - low pay - dangerous situations

6 Research, travel to cover stories, communicating with others, and taking images are used daily Photography is incorporated into career because interesting images have to be taken to match the story being covered Computer, film, digital cameras, lighting, tripods, etc. would be needed Normally need own equipment (larger companies may supply) Work hours depend on what story project is being covered

7 I chose this career because I am interested in being a photojournalist This still appeals to me because I enjoy reporter writing, photography, and travel I wouldn’t change this career to make it any better I probably wouldn’t recommend this job to others if they are looking to earn money, because it is not a high paying job
