How Far Can Photojournalists Go?
During the Photography Show earlier this year, I was part of a discussion panel for Professional Photography magazine along with my talented friend and colleague Paul Sanders and the talented Elisabeth Blanchet and Martin Middlebrook. It was a fascinating hour long discussion on staging, manipulation, ethics, the press and photojournalism. I’m happy to share that the text from the discussion is featured in the May issue of Professional Photography magazine, over six pages, which is now on sale.
You can get a copy of the May issue, or a subscription to the magazine HERE. Hope you enjoy the read and feel free to carry the discussion on here in the comments section if you wish.

It’s always nice to be featured in magazines and this week’s Amateur Photographer magazine (June 19, 2014) has a double page spread about my “Love Your Job” photograph. Fittingly, as the issue is a tribute to Leica’s 100th anniversary, the image was made on my Leica M9.

With RØDE Microphones and Scan
I did a live webinar a short while ago with Jonathan Burrows for the fabulous folks at Scan and Source Distribution, talking about how I use Rode Microphones in my film making. If you’re not familiar with Scan, I can’t recommend them highly enough for all your computer component and peripheral needs; I’ve been using them for well over a decade!
The webinar is in two parts; hope you find it useful 🙂 To view the films mentioned in the webinar, please visit www.teravision.eu

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.
