Photojournalism

Are you a storyteller by nature? Do you enjoy finding & curating imagery that helps your audience understand poignant and pivotal moments?

As a photojournalist, you will be able to not only ponder stories that you feel need to be told but explore ways of communicating about them visually in illuminating ways. In addition to preparing and presenting a photographically illustrated story by week’s end, we will talk this June about visual art and journalism, why it is important for journalists to listen, and what specific skills photojournalists need.
