Do any of you know if there is any sort of option or procedure for a photographer to embedd into unit of soldiers for photographic purposes?

I'm interested to see if there is any means that I could get myself in a situation where I can photograph war, With out actualy being a soldier. I dont want to fight for a political crap fest, But I would love to document it.


I'm just curious to know if any of you mili guys have heard of any such option for a civilian photographer, Or perhaps have some information that might point me in the right direction.



Probly just a ridiculous idea, But I thought I'd ask to make sure.

most embedded reporters from what i've been told from guys who've gone to iraq were with news sources, like nbc. other than being affiliated with something like that, no idea. you could always write them and ask if theyll let you say your with them, agree to give them copies and rights to photos, mabye that would work

You mean Asterisk, Stealth, Asterisk.

The asterisks enhance the stealthiness.

I wouldn't enjoy doing that.  Just imagine if you were in the heat of battle documenting, and everyone around you gets their heads blown off.  I would rather fight than be the hostage who survives with "valuable footage."

Just my two cents.

Call the military like posted above. They'll probably be able to tell you what to do. Make sure you talk to a recruiter though. They may be able to get you into a MOS of battlefiled photography

I would enlist as an 11B infantry....and then tell your drill instructors that it's cool...."I'm with the press" and see how far that gets you.

As soon as you die from heat stroke...come back here and let us know how it went.

What a dumbass....


Volunteer you MORON....do something for your country...and then be an ARTIST.

Don't expect your country to ENABLE you as an Artist....

Christ....I am ranting....my fault....morons get my dander up.
