The Dual Model of the Digital Photojournalist: A Case Study on Romanian Photojournalism beyond the Economic Crisis

Alexandra BARDAN


This article aims to put in perspective the “crisis” notion: beyond the economic crisis of the past decade, the adoption of the digital media in the journalism feld has brought into question not only news business models, but also professional ones. Our theoretical approach examines the defnition of the double-sided crisis in the context of the media industry, and more specifc regarding digital photojournalism, and wishes to identify the emerging professional and business models of the new media economy. The second part of the paper explores this transition from a local perspective, using a qualitative approach, based on a body of fourteen interviews, conducted one-on-one, with Romanian photojournalists.

Keywords: economic crisis, digital photojournalism, professional and business models
