Back with yet another question and answer film. I know, I know, repetitive but I feel like these are good questions and are questions that have been directed my way more than once. By the way, for you delicate types, if you are offended by my ranting about things like Instagram that tells me I’m on the right track. If you don’t work in the professional, creative industry you might not know or witness the destruction that things like Instagram have created. I will continue to harp on this as long as I live. Get used to it or you might have to venture elsewhere.

Saw this photo by Lynsey Addario in the paper the other day:
I did some research on her and picked up her book from the library just this weekend. She’s fearless.
Yep, she’s been out there for quite some time. Tyler Hicks is a NYT shooter. He’s been at it a long while. Haviv is in Ukraine as well. Several others.
Great video Dan. Love the IG sarcasm. I’ve not shot film since just before Covid stuff. You’ve inspired me to dig out my OM10 and shoot some 35mm. I’ve some 120 roll film I could do with shooting on medium format camera I’ve not shot for a while as well. Thanks for what you do matey. Regards. Neil M UK.
Film is a blast. Logistics are the only issue. If you solve those you are off to the races.
Great photographers you’ve mentioned. I’ve followed Hicks and Addario through a lot of wars. Hicks can’t avoid danger. My memory might be a bit off here. I think shortly after moving from Istanbul (or somewhere) to Kenya, he found himself covering a scary terrorist attack on a mall.
That sounds about right. Most of these folks have long records of conflict zones. It’s a skill, for sure.
