I like taking pictures for fun but I want to move on to something more challenging and interesting. Photojournalism is something I've wanted to do for some time now and just have never got around to it. The biggest problem I am having is how to start. I bought a copy of Writer's and Artist's Yearbook for 2006 which is some help for contacts. Should I contact magazines prior to actually doing a story and then if there is interest do the essay, or should I do the essay and then try to sell it? Any insights, comments or pointers will be greatly appreciated.
