I am confused between citizen photojournalist and Press photojournalist. As people know, if you don't have any qualification in media or some awards in photography it is nearly impossible to become Press photojournalist as every news agency demand it. In other hand, citizen photojournalist who don't have qualification or skill, can become a Press photojournalist if he/she is in War torn country eg(Syria,Afghanistan..etc). So how can a citizen photojournalist in peaceful country (Australia,Norway etc..) can become a paid Press Photojournalist for freelance? And also most of the place are banned for citizen photojournalist and only allow the Press photojournalist with the press ID?
My clear point of question is "how can I earn money as a freelance photojournalist without qualification in media?" as freelance photojournalist need news agency for him/her to send photos.
