Photojournalism: The Professionals’ Approach [With Dvdrom] by Kenneth Kobre

Please try again later. I’m a print reporter who creates weekly slide shows for two hyperlocal sites. That’s a fancy term for online only community news I can take a halfway decent photo, but I wanted to learn to think like a photojournalist. I bought this book after having a photograph turned down by another company.

The editor said the photograph “didn’t tell the story. I read all the reviews and they are accurate. This is a great book. It’s given me much to consider as I head out to do my slide shows.

There’s good technical information on lenses, camera bodies, strobe, portraits etc. I also bought the “Associated Press Guide to Photojournalism.

If you want to learn the artistry of photography, this book might not be for you. But if you want to make powerful photos, Photojournalissm invest in this book.


Photojournalism, the professionals approach is an excellent introduction to photojournalism. Introduction doesn’t quite do justice to everything this book covers. A person with a solid understanding of photography could photojournalis his knowlege to use immediately following an in depth read of this book. I suppose most people would want to cover the subjuct more solidly to really feel comfortable joining the ranks of professional photojournalist, but this will give the long time hobbyist photojoournalism start he needs to get started working in photojournalism professionally.

This book has great insightful tips from professionals currently working in the business. It goes in depth in most conceivable areas a photojournalist would want to work; It covers everything from how to track down and cover breaking news stories to how to design an phorojournalism feature.

It covers the legal aspects of copywriting your photos, signing legal contracts including legal jargon and pitfalls to avoid, and avoiding trouble with legal officials.

It also covers where to find work and how you will be expected to perform when you get a job. It reads like it is designed for a university ‘introduction to journalism’ course. I read it outside of any official student activities and found it easy to follow and very informative.

I highly reccomend it to anyone interested in pursuing a career in photojournalism.

I was hoping to get some insight into how to spot the photo that tells the story. How do you choose what to shoot if you come upon a fire or car accident or protest mob? There are lots of good tips about taking special effect photos and other unusual situations but I could not find anything to tell me how to look at a large scene and find the story photo inside it somewhere. I can shoot hundreds of photos but not get the right one that tells the story, no thanks to this book. Joe D Top Contributor: This is a terrific book, and it really deserves 5 stars, but I dinged it a star because the DVD is so difficult to play.

I tried it unsuccessfully on two Photojournwlism players, and finally had to resort to downloading photojournalidm software to access the content because it is in IFO and VOB files that don’t seem to be recognized anymore. I have used every edition of this text in my level college Photojornalism course for years. It continues to provide the right combination of technical, historical, critical and anecdotal material to interest students. Plus, the photographic illustrations are great.


Photojournalism – A Professionals’ Approach was an invaluable resource in an intro to photojournalsm class I recently took. Kenneth Kobre pretty photpjournalism leaves no stone unturned with respect to utilizing photographs to tell stories, illustrate and document all manner photoojurnalism events. Every facet of photojournalism is covered, from news to sports, video to multimedia, and even ethics and legalities in photography and photojournalism.

You will find a clean and nice style of writing explaining you a bunch of subjects. Throughout the book, there are images that point phktojournalism examples also mentioned on the text and help you understand what they are talking about. Chapters have a logical length also.
