Ep. 010 - Ethically Speaking (Photo Friday Special - Roundtable)


Ho Boy! We picked a doozie this time.

Ethics in Photojournalism...Sounds simple enough, doesn't it?

Where does one you start? From the moral standards to be upheld by publications, to the expectation of Truth, to the every increasing pressure to make your photos stand out while adhering to more rigorous standards...

We dive in and we dive deep.

As always, on this "Roundtable" Photo Friday episode, I am joined 2 of my 3 trusted advisors and fellow enthusiasts, namely Vivardy Boursiquot and Dimitri Rousseau (*Koralie Woodward could not join us this time around) as we attempt to throw our humble yet enthusiastic hats into the ring and try our luck at taming this impressive beast of a subject in our own curious way.

You can connect with Dimitri via his Instagram.

You can connect with Vivardy via his website or Instagram as well.

Some resources and show notes discussed in this episode include but not limited to...
