People ask where it is better to study photojournalism – at university or on courses, or immediately join the ranks of reporters and create a portfolio? Who is better to work with – with a photo agency or Internet service? Where to begin? What to do? Is it possible? How long will it take? How much money does it take to become a photo reporter?
