I get dozens of emails every week from individuals around the world asking how they can become a photojournalist. It is a difficult question and unfortunately there are no easy answers. There is probably one way to become a photojournalist for every one of us that is working today.However, I do understand the curiosity and there is quite a lot of mystery surrounding the subject. People want to know if it is better to study photojournalism in a university, graduate program or just go out into the field and build a portfolio? Is it better to work with a photo agency or wire service or have a go at it on your own? Where do I start? What do I do? Is it even possible? How long does it take? How much money will I need to get started?
