We apologize for the delay in posting a new episode. We have been busy moving to our new offices but before we moved out we recorded one last episode in our old photo studio before moving to our new offices. Max Gersh, of The Villages Daily Sun photographer, calls into the show to talk about his fantastic sports portrait project. The elaborately staged portraits were shot for the Villages Daily Sun’s high school basketball kick-off issue.
Photojournalism on the radio...sort of. The photography centric podcast is hosted by veteran photojournalist Todd Mizener with help from fellow photogs Todd Welvaert and Meg McLaughlin. Our goal is to both entertain and inform with our personal experiences or via interviews with a wide variety of guests. Mizener is the former Director of Photography for the Dispatch/Argus, a mid-sized daily newspaper, located in western Illinois along the banks of the Mississippi River in Moline, Ill. He is currently the Marketing & Communications Director for the D/A and Quad-City Times. We all get asked questions about our jobs and the podcast lets us answer some of those questions. It also affords us the opportunity to connect with readers, aspiring photographers, and learn a thing or two from our guests. The podcast is also an extension of our historically strong intern teaching program. Please email your questions and/or topic suggestions to [email protected] and don’t forget to tune each week for a new episode.
