A photojournalist has the added advantage of showing copies or sample of the photos that he/she has done for the purpose of presentation when in an interview.
Then if the photos have an adjacent story behind them, he could easily win over an interviewing panel without as much as a word. But as always, a resume is always required fore reference purposes and also captures the basic personal details that the photographs will not show.
