What Photo Buyers Want: National Geographic’s Senior Photo Editor, Elizabeth Krist
Tuesday June 5th, 2012 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT
Simply put, National Geographic has the kind of photography that makes your jaw drop. This award-winning magazine is revered for its striking images from all corners of the world, and for that reason photographers dream of getting hired to shoot a featured story or having one of their personal series published.
In this live webinar with National Geographic, Senior Photo Editor Elizabeth Krist will share why she considers photographers to be “gods”, what kind of photography grabs her attention, and a behind-the-scenes look at how she and her colleagues closely work with photographers to take the issue’s photos from inception to completion.
In additional to all the above, Elizabeth will also discuss:
- How the magazine’s content dictates what photography will be commissioned vs. picked up.
- The standout quality that makes photographers most valuable to the magazine.
- What it’s really like to work as a freelance photographer with the photo department.
- And more!
