According to CNBC, being a photojournalist is the 4th most stressful job in America. Photojournalists often have to deal with working in dangerous environments, work long hours, and have to be on call practically 24 hours a day. See the whole list after the jump.

The dangers of the job are also evident: earlier this year, four journalists for the New York Times were captured and held in Libya and eventually released. In fact, journalists in the US and abroad are killed in the line of work every year (16 so far in 2011 as of this writing), according to the Committee to Protect Journalists. –

Here is the top 10 list:

  1. Commercial Airline Pilot
  2. Public Relations Executive
