Photos, too!

Today I am editing photos to accompany a story I am writing. I advise all aspiring journalists to add a few photography classes to their course load. It’s a fun way to make extra money. And, when you feel too tired to write, editing photos is a relaxing way to be productive. Not that I’m implying that I feel tired… OK, you got me. I’m tired.

  1. Yeah, and the magazine is happy because they just have to send one person to the interview instead of two.

  2. It’s a win-win situation. A writer-photog is getting paid twice to be somewhere once. Also, in this dreadful economy, it’s an added advantage that may make the difference between landing a gig and not.

    Of course, the flip side is that the writer-photog’s attention is divided, which may make the job more stressful. But who doesn’t like a little stress?
