Start a photojournalism career at photography schools

The photography world - and photography training - is defined by its specializations. Photojournalism is a large branch on that tree. Mixing reportage and the art of image, photojournalism is a popular choice for those who wish to make photography a career.

What do journalism and photography schools generally entail?

A college degree is generally preferred or required for most photojournalism careers, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). A 2-year associate degree may be sufficient for technical and assistant positions, a bachelor's degree and potentially a Master of Fine Arts in photography could be on the list of requirements for certain competitive positions. At the higher education level, photography classes cover techniques and composition, as well as business tools and techniques - more than half of all photographers were self-employed in 2008, the BLS notes.

What can I learn with a degree in photography and journalism?

The following are just a few of the skills taught at photography schools:

  1. Photography equipment and lighting
  2. Achieving ideal picture composition
  3. Understanding the picture's aims in specific assignments
  4. Photography software like PhotoShop

At the conclusion of any program, you should have an expanded portfolio and a deeper idea of the specialized art behind photographing news events.

What careers can a degree in photography and journalism prepare me for?

The BLS reports that photographers working for newspaper, periodical, book and directory publishers earned mean annual wages of $40,580 in 2010. Moderate growth is projected across the industry with 17,500 new jobs estimated to open in the field between 2008 and 2018. While no photography school can guarantee you it will lead to a job, this specialized training can help you expand your portfolio and impress potential hiring managers in the field.
