Photojournalism is simply being reborn.
With the accessibility of camera phones and photoshop, a once nitty-gritty and highly revered profession is changing into something far more domestic. And while most of my fellow journalists detest the change, I am far more optimistic.
As an amateur photographer and videographer, I revel in the new opportunity. As a PR professional, footage has never been more attainable. And in an increasingly visual and digital world, what’s there to complain about?
So don’t whine about the death of photojournalism; rather celebrate its rebirth! For mankind loves a challenge, and with every instagram shot we are forced to rise up and improve.
The field is changing, so you can either drag your heels or join the revolution. My suggestion? Evolve…evolve and take lots of pictures.
