What Does It Take To Become A Photojournalist in the Middle East?

If you have ever considered becoming a photojournalist in the Middle East, you are probably wondering about the exhaustive training that is required.

After all, it's not easy to find the right scene and the people necessary to be in it. It requires a practiced eye in order to set it up just right so that you send the right message.

Take this picture for example:

It's not easy to stage these sort of spontaneous shots!

You're probably wondering how those photojournalists acquire all of those skills.

I'll tell you.

It takes practice.
Lots and lots of practice.
