Civic photographers and photojournalists are different

By Eunice Ng, 25th October, 2016

There were some differences between civic photographers and photo journalists, a photo journalist, said on Tuesday.


Ringo Chiu, a former photo journalist at Sing Tao Daily, said everyone can take photos and be a civic reporter because of the advanced technology. Yet, there are some differences between civic reporters and professional photo journalists.


“Civic reporters take photos without professional training but photo journalists have,” he said.


“Personally, I think taking photos is similar to writing articles,” he said.


“We should write down the outline before we write the articles. It means that we should gather information of the assignment first then shoot the photos,” he added.


Chiu used forest fire as an example to illustrate the process of taking photos.


Chiu said a professional journalist should gather the basic information, consider the situation and how to use photos to express the situation of forest fire.


Comment:

Media owners put private business interest ahead of the press’s watchdog role, leading to significant deterioration of press freedom over the past years, renowned photojournalist Ringo Chui said. Chui, whose photojournalism career spans three decades and crosses major news media outlets in Hong Kong and the US, believes pressure from mainland companies made the city’s media unable to report freely. “Hong Kong is getting increasingly similar to the mainland, while Shanghai is increasingly westernised,” he said.
