There was a time when journalists were just journalists, and photographers were just that, photographers. Today, it is more practical to have a strong command of Standard American English (grammar, proper punctuation, a strong vocabulary, be very good at spelling, etc) and being well-versed in photography that can produce marketable photos to seek positions in photojournalism, since most journalists are now required to carry some sort of functional camera (even the ubiquitous cell ‘phone camera). Aside from that, and depending on how well-versed you are in English, you may teach English creative classes, or Beginner Photography classes, etc.
