Transmedia Journalism and the NPPA Business Blitz Road Show

Hah! Sorry for the tease. Really, there will be a full blog post here soon. But in the short term, know this:

I’ll be presenting on Transmedia Journalism at the NPPA Business Blitz Road Show in Boston on July 14, in Austin on September 29, and possibly in two more cities to be announced. My co-presenters include my former student Matt Slaby of Luceo Images, Allen Murabayashi of Photoshelter and intellectual property attorney and photojournalist Alicia Calzada.

Registration info is here. Join us for interactive presentations on the future of photojournalism, the media business, your freelance career and the future of storytelling.

My Porkpie hat’s off to Slaby

I send my congratulations to former student Matt Slaby, one of the founders of Luceo Images, for inclusion in the American Photography AP25 annual. He and Luceo cohort Matt Eich made the cut.

There must be something in that name…

Welcome.

This blog is created for students, teachers and anyone interested in the current state and future of photojournalism.

I’ll use it as an adjunct to my own classroom, adding material and thoughts I can’t deliver to my students during lecture. I hope to add ideas to the soupy worldwide discussion of the art, craft and profession of photojournalism (or documentary or editorial photography, whatever label you choose).

The idea for it came over a café cortado and a sandwiche cubano at a northwest Denver cafe with Matt Slaby, a former student and one of the founders of the rising-star collective Luceo Images.

In discussion of Web marketing for photojournalists I confessed to Matt that I found most blogs either meaningless or too snarky to read. For sake of getting the would-be train-wreck watchers they often wield one-sided and shallow criticism.

On the spot I realized perhaps I had a niche.

Or an itch.

Yes, there will be opinion here, and observations from both the trenches of working photojournalism and the ivory tower of academia. But I’ll keep it civilized, well-thought-out and hopefully valuable. If the content is worthwhile to you, please add me to your RSS feeds.
