For decades, photos have defined the historic events of their time. At one point, we relied on journalists to cover news stories and share them with us. Today, almost everyone has that opportunity.
The rise of citizen journalism means that in crisis situations anyone might be able to take the photo that will define the event for the next generation. As a photographer, you have the edge. Or at least you should.
If, God forbid, tragedy strikes while you happen to have your camera, what will you do?
This is what we discussed in our May Free Photo Webinar - Photography in crisis situations.

P.S. One of our listeners asked me to share this link to Jeremy Lock's site as a good example of editorial photojournalism.
