Is it necessary to complete a course in photography to work with a newspaper or magazine?
Are you looking for an answer to whether a person who has not got any formal education in Photography as a subject can get employment in newspapers or magazines? Check out this thread for the options.
My queries are-
1. Is it necessary to complete a formal course in photography that is or is not a part of a formal journalism course?
2. Is any other formal academic qualification necessary, such as that you must be a Graduate? Can even a 10th or 12th passed candidate get employment as a photographer with a newspaper or a magazine to, say, cover events?
Note that I am not talking about photojournalism but just a general photographer getting an employment opportunity with newspapers or magazines.
