    I would really love to one day work as a photojournalist. Would any of you have any points as to how I could accomplish this goal? What sort of pictures should i go with in my porfolio? Also, how would I go about finding work in this field? Please respond asap.

    Go to college is one choice. Build a portfolio of images that have that photo journalist style. Look at your better daily papers. Try to work at getting stuff into community/local newspapers. Not that easy of a thing to answer. Alot hustling and hard work.

    Not really sure if any of this helps.

    Where are you located? maybe someone can recommend some schools. Then you work on the college newspaper and build a portfolio through that.

    Best thing you can do is apply for an internship at a local newspaper. If you do well, things will only go uphill from there.
