Last week we skyped with Ben Garvin. He talked about maximizing break time. He said if you are interested in newspapers or wires, contact those places now and go in and talk to them. He said show your work and be genuinely interested in what they do and don’t be cocky about your work and what you do because that gives a bad impression. He also told us to make sure we know how to produce compelling multimedia. In addition, he said that the best photojournalists show their subjects they genuinely care about them, and they do not just take photographs and leave.
Congrats to Josh Barber for winning POTW this week.
