School Newspaper Advisers: 17 Websites For Student Photographers

 It's tough to find really committed student photographers. I'm talking about the ones who are always there and ready for any assignment that comes their way. They also need a good camera, preferably a DSLR which they can use to capture sports, whether it is indoors or outdoors. I was fortunate this year to have an awesome photography editor, a young lady who manages to do well in all her classes, run on the track team AND keep after her staff of five photographers. If you are the newspaper adviser in your school, it is very important that your photographers know how to take pictures.
