12 AP Photojournalists; Eight Countries
Trailer from Ken Kobre on Vimeo.
I had the pleasure of attending a screening of “Deadline Every Second” by Ken Kobré at the Frontline Club a week ago. It’s a brilliantly shot short film covering 12 photojournalists from AP as they cover various assignments around the world, with great photographer interviews as well as superb footage of them actually on the job. Just to make things complete, we’re also treated to the actual images taken by the photographers.

The event had AP staff photographer Lefteris Pitarakis, one of the featured photographers, and Ken Kobré present for a very interesting Q&A session after the screening.

I can’t recommend this film highly enough to anyone interested in journalism or world affairs, but also to photojournalists and students of it. Definitely try and see it. It’s being screened by various US TV stations and is also available from Amazon.

In October 2010 I was at the Canon Pro Photo Solutions which was a great success. I was with SnapperStuff showcasing some great bags from Think Tank Photo as well as giving a seminar on my workflow using Apple’s Aperture 3.
I wanted to share a video on the show, which amongst a lot of interesting interviews also has an interview with me (around 15 seconds in). Unfortunately I can’t embed the video, so CLICK HERE to watch it.
