What is a Photojournalist?

Photojournalists, also referred to as news photographers, use still photography and other digital media in creating newsworthy stories for the public.

Photojournalists should be creative while possessing solid technical knowledge in the field of photography. In addition to still photography, photojournalists are often responsible for delivering information by using various social media outlets across the Internet.
