Photojournalism is a type of photography where many photos are taken to describe a story. Photojournalism is different from normal photography because there is ethical rules that have to be followed in order for the story to be honest and impartial. The NPPA is the National Press Photographers Association which has a code of ethics which helps keep the standard for all photojournalists. The media needs ethics so people are able to trust the media to give them the truth and that the news that they are receiving has not been tampered with.
