What is Press and PR Photography?


Press Photography covers a wide spectrum. Media Photography or Photojournalism is a professional photographer who captures images of current stories. For example events or newsworthy occurrences for news agencies, printed newspapers, magazines, and news websites. Furthermore, for longer term reportage or documentary style pieces, the term photojournalist is a wider used term. However, press photography and photojournalism often cross over during the course of work.  


PR Photography is essentially a form of commercial photography with a news angle. A PR photographer is commissioned to create images for a business, organisation or individual’s news usage. These images are used with press releases or for public relations use. These help to enhance press coverage in newspapers, magazines and more increasingly social media online.

 A picture can tell a thousand words, this couldn’t be truer with PR photography. As a result, a well-crafted image can often elevate a PR story.  

Through shares, likes and press coverage these photographs can help raise the profile of a business, charity or person.
