Additionally, you can count on a photojournalist to have a pleasant manner and to dress appropriately.

5. Stealthy – To effectively capture moments, photographers must be unobtrusive and attentive. It’s a tricky combination of characteristics but imperative to strike that balance between being ready to capture the moment and to go almost unnoticed so that the subjects can relax and act naturally.

6. Personality – Most photojournalists are likable and charming. After all, if your profession is listening to people tell their story, it would make sense for the person to have a natural ability to put people at ease and make them laugh.
