These days, the traditional media landscape is not a pretty sight. Scores of photojournalists have been laid off as newspapers have cut staffs, reduced publication days and in some cases, closed altogether. “Do more with less” and “right sizing” have become part of the workplace lexicon.
So it’s easy to become discouraged as newspapers lose their position in American society.
I came across this video a couple of weeks ago. It offers a different way for us to approach our job as photojournalists.
And if you’ve lost your job or you’ve just finished a five-assignment day and have an overbearing editor looking over your shoulder this video is not going to make things right. But it does, at least, offer another perspective on how to approach life and work differently and how, perhaps to make it better.
