Photo Journalist Job Profile in Australia
A Photo Journalist collects, edits and presents material that represent a situation or event, much as a radio or newspaper reporter does. A Photo Journalist is an expert in recording images or video to tell a story. The keys to doing so effectively are:
  • timeliness: the images must be relevant to a recent event or situation
  • objectivity: the situation illustrated by the images ought to be a fair and accurate representation
  • narrative: the images must be engaging and clear in order to attract the attention of viewers

A Photo Journalist must be capable of recording images regardless of obstacles including physical danger, weather and crowds of people. The major agencies that employ Photo Journalists are Reuters and AP. Most Photo Journalists are independent and sell their work to editors or galleries.
