A photojournalist photographs, edits, and displays images in order to tell a visual story. They are journalistic professionals that are skilled at interpreting and communicating an event through photographs. The subject matter can vary greatly, all the way from social unrest in a foreign country, to issues and events happening at a local level.
Photojournalists can work as freelance photographers, or can be employed by photo agencies, magazines or local newspapers. Employment areas include the internet, print, and television.
