Thread: anyone here working for a local newspaper?

    Default anyone here working for a local newspaper?

    just wondering.. now im workign for my school newspaper here in Hawaii... its more of a part-time job but im slowly falling in love with photojournalism.

    I've talked to people who are shooting for the local newspaper and they ALL love their jobs. And i feel like its something i would love doing for a living.

    I heard they make about 20-40k/year depending on seniority.

    How tough is it to get chosen to shoot for lets say the straits times? Is the local market over-saturated already ?

    From what I heard from my friend, A Lianhe ZaoBao photographer, they only have two holidays a year; Christmas and Chinese New Year.Other than that, they are pretty stuck up with their work.Paywise I'm not too sure.

    someone here DOES have the experience.. just that he either didn't see this thread or prefers not to comment
