Photojournalism is distinguished from other close branches of photography by complying with a rigid ethical framework which demands that the work be both honest and impartial whilst telling the story in strictly journalistic terms.

Photography is the science, art, application and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film.


Photojournalists create pictures that contribute to the news media, and help communities connect with one other.


Photojournalists must be well informed and knowledgeable about events happening right outside their door.


They deliver news in a creative format that is not only informative, but also entertaining.


The images have meaning in the context of a recently published record of events.


The situation implied by the images is a fair and accurate representation of the events they depict in both content and tone.


The images combine with other news elements to make facts relatable to the viewer or reader on a cultural level.


Like a writer, a photojournalist is a reporter, but he or she must often make decisions instantly and carry photographic equipment, often while exposed to significant obstacles.

A journalist is a person who collects, writes, or distributes news or other current information.
