    hi akertesz,

    what would be a good age to go into photojournalism? would there be something like "too old" for it? Thanks!

    photography, any advise on creating a relevant portfolio in preparation for such an interview? eg what type of pictures to shoot? what are the interviewers looking for?

    I don't know how useful this info is to the TS, but just to share:

    When I applied to join Reuters as a photo editor, I was given several tests during the interview. One test was in identifying local and foreign newsmakers, celebrities, and sports personalities. Another was in captioning photographs, and using the right keywords to tag images. And another involved looking at a series of photographs (of the same event/ person) and selecting the 'right' one to feature.

    I suppose this is a step up from a PJ whose main concern is about supplying photographs, but I guess it will help take you further in this field, if you have some knowledge and interest beyond the technicalities of taking a good photo.

    Here is a link to an interview I transcribed from the New York Times. It features their photo editor Michele McNally, and her views on photojournalism.

    All the best to you.
