Photojournalist Resume Template

Online news and magazines won’t be so interesting without the work of photojournalists whose creative eye can capture some of the most poignant and dramatic moments in a war, a calamity, a scandal, or a simple field medical work into world focus.  The photojournalist often has some specialty where he enjoys taking pictures and writing short narrative about it.  It can be as dangerous as taking photos in a war zone or as frivolous as taking photos of a royalty’s collection of thorough bred horses.  A resume for the position often includes a portfolio of your works.
