Gear: Another Year Another World Press Photo
The World Press Photo contest was held and again, Canon took the trophy in most used camera. What are out thoughts on this, does it matter, do we care? Also, why isn’t the GH4 listed here!
During the show we ended talking about a bunch of related links that Zach promised to add… here they are:
You can read Donald R. Winslow’s slightly disheartening interview with The New York Times, and Leslye Davis’ more sunny response at the Times Lens Blog. Then along with the “Uber of Photography” there was David H Wells addition of Kodak’s similar photographer services site called KodakIT. Zach mentioned the website Whopayswriters.com that gives pretty detailed into on what you should expect pay wise from publications that you write for. David also recommended his blog piece on the election which you can read at his website Thewellspoint.com. Finally we here at ATL implore you to take this survey if you’re a working photojournalist.
