Photojournalists

High School

Because photojournalists report on everything from wars to political campaigns to small-town parades, your education should be well-rounded. Take classes in English, foreign language, history, and the sciences to prepare yourself for the job. Of course, take as many photography classes as possible. If few or no photo classes are available at your high school, consider signing up for classes at your local community college or art center. These classes might put you in touch with other artists in your area and will allow you access to darkroom and computer imaging equipment.
