Concentration in Photojournalism

“A picture is worth a thousand words.” It’s true. Photos bring the world to our doorstep.

If you want to become a professional photographer, then this is the place for you.

Your photos will make ordinary things more interesting, and strange things even more exotic. This is visual communication that needs no words to tell a story. Shoot and edit the great photographs that help people learn about our world.
