Shooters: TV News Photographers and Their Work


The occupational world of electronic news-gathering photographers is the focus of this study, which seeks to reveal their perceptions of their work and the knowledge and competence that underlie it. These goals are accomplished through the ethnographic analysis of qualitative data gathered through participant observation in their natural setting--at work. A reflexive description of the data explores the emerging nature of the occupation, the context of markets within which it exists, the people involved, and the practical skills required for the work.
