    Congrats!

    I'm shooting for my highschool yearbook and I have every intention of carrying that over to university work, even if all it gets me is admission to all the games and such. OSU college football games > *

    emailed the editor and asked if they were in need of a photographer and sent him a link to my portfolio. the chief photographer sent me an email a couple weeks later asking for my school id and birthday so she could register me for it.

    dont know about equipment. i didnt ask b/c i've got my own schwag

    I suggest you start getting in the practice of writing captions and telling a story with a single image.

    I concur. Becoming a photojournalist is a lot different than simply taking lots of pics. Take notes and always know the names of the subjects in your photos.
