Go visit your local papers and ask if you can get some freelance jobs. Expect a no unless you have a good photojournalist portfolio. A decent way to get one is to go to smaller events, think food festivals etc where you don’t need a press pass. Submit your images to the various stock agencies and see if they get accepted.

Taking a course would not be a bad idea though a photography course is probably not the most useful since a good tog does not necessarily make a good photojournalist. I’d also suggest learning basic french, arabic, urdu and russian. With those four languages you’ll have a good base for the big war zones. when you have a bit of journalism experience try to get a job abroad.
