Photojournalism is one of the most important and exciting genres of photography, but as two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, National Geographic photographer and Canon Ambassador Muhammed Muheisen explains, you need to be very sensitive towards the people you're photographing.
"Sometimes you photograph events in which you have to put yourself on the other side of the camera," he explains. "You need a camera that allows you to capture moments in time without invading the subject's privacy or their personal space."
Muhammed, also a mentor on the recent Canon Student Development Programme 2022 , fell in love with photography at an early age and steadily built a successful career. "I became passionate about capturing moments in time and then I combined my passion with my education to be a good storyteller," he says. "Working hard, endlessly seeking knowledge and improving my skills helped me get noticed by agencies and big media outlets."
