a call to arms – photojournalism is not dead | Redlights and Redeyes


A call to arms, not only for myself, but for everyone out there.  Ignore the rants preaching photojournalism is dead.  It isn’t.  It’s changed.  It’s what we make of it.  Yes, photos need to be shot in 20 minutes sometimes.  Make it the best 20 minutes you can.  In the end, we’re there to tell a story and even if our little 3-column photo is the only thing that gets a reader to read the eight-inch block of text underneath, our job is done.  Onto the next one.  In your free time, get off Facebook, find your project, your own path, and make your vision known.
