There’s an increasing requirement for reporters to provide pictures to accompany their stories and of course the technology now exists to send those pictures instantly to the picture editor, news desk, etc. Universities in the UK have begun offering degrees in photojournalism such as the University of the Arts, University of Gloucestershire, University of Wales Trinity Saint David, University of South Wales and London Metropolitan University. There are also courses dedicated to the subject run at Sheffield College. You’ll need to check their websites to find out what’s available.
