How do I become a press photographer?

11/30/2023 | By: FDS
To become a press photographer, you'll need to show a combination of photography skills, journalism training, and a decent portfolio. A photography or journalism degree is a good start, but most press photographers are trained through experience in the industry. Attend advanced photography workshops, sign up for photo contests, and shoot in your spare time. Once you've built up your photography skills and have an extensive portfolio, you can apply to local newspapers and magazines or try to start your own business as a freelance photographer. It's also a good idea to find a networking group for press photographers in your area to see what others in the industry are doing.
