Adams became interested in photography during his teenage years. Doing portrait and wedding photography, he decided to take his passion elsewhere. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and spent three years as a combat photographer during the Korean War. Noted for his celebrity portraits and coverage of 13 wars (including the Korean War), Adams was a Pulitzer Prize winning American photographer and photojournalist, known for the photograph "Saigon Execution" (Figure 1).
I personally believe that, combat photography is the most dangerous type of job for photographers. They are soldiers armed by photographic equipment, instead of firearms and they are photographers who are trained for war. One can say that it is profession which is bittersweet. Combat photographers are placed in the most difficult situations, most of the times being in the middle of a gunfire, but they are able to take the most controversial, yet beautiful pictures during wartimes.
