Photojournalism in the age of the Internet « Mastering Multimedia

I’ve been working on a presentation I will give next month called “Photojournalism in the age of the Internet.” In the process, I’ve been thinking a lot about how much photojournalism has changed for newspaper photojournalists.

With the rise of the  Internet, traditional photojournalists have been faced with a dilemma. Stay a purist to the craft by clinging to their still cameras or embrace the change by venturing out into the online world by adding video and audio to their storytelling toolboxes.

  1. I think future photojournalists will definitely add video
    & audio to their work. In doing so they increase the power
    of their message ten fold.

  2. In many ways its inevitable that photojournalists will have to do this; print media is a declining medium for photojournalism while the web offers numerous possible innovations – the question is at what point does it stop being PHOTOjournalism I guess!

    Just written a piece on this, and the impact of social media.
