The State of Photography.

11 Jun

In the age of digital cameras, citizen journalists, and everyone (including your 10-year-old cousin) owning a camera phone there is a lot of photography to sort through.  Better cameras are always coming out that offer a point-and-shoot ability and produces fantastically well done images. Today it can be more difficult to pick out the professional work from the masses.  Does this affect photographers? Of course it does. Just as blogging and social media have changed the world of journalism it has changed the industry of photography.

My classmate and established photographer Katy Weaver recently put together a documentary for a new media communications course taught by Ed Madison – CEO of Engaging Media – that focuses on some of the big issues plaguing the photography industry today. Take a look and share your thoughts.

Goodbye, Photography.
