Photojournalist on the Edge of War

Many photojournalists cover a city beat that includes everything from local politics and business to heartwarming human interest stories - but many photojournalists risk falling through the thin veneer of civilization as they cover stories of civil war, violent protests, and civilian clashes with government. In our Video Pick, Pulitzer Prize winning photographer John Moore narrates his story of a recent assignment in the Middle East, and he talks about the story behind his images. You can also read an earlier interview with Moore as he discusses what it's like to be a photographer in harm's way. 
In many instances the best protection in dangerous situations is simply to rely on one’s instincts. My instincts have been honed by a lot of experience, so I ignore them at my peril. Of course there are risks in this business, but I try to measure them as best as I can. While embedded with military forces, I wear a flack jacket and helmet, as well as ballistic eye protection. One of the worst fears is kidnapping, both in Iraq and Afghanistan and I almost always travel with the military in areas where that is an issue.

Taking Photography to the Streets (Down Under) 

Shopping Rush - photograph for Melbourne Street website by Will Watt
The streets of Melbourne, Australia is a central subject for Aussie photographer Will Watt. You can see his work featured on the Melbourne Street website. In our featured video, provided by the always-excellent Shutterbugs group, Will talks about how he first became interested in photography (his tale will likely jar a few of your own childhood memories loose), what he loves about the streets of Melbourne, and how he likes to keep his work fresh and post a new photo each day on his website - this is a great goal for any photographer.

Photographer Meets Music Video

Photo by Jeremy Cowart

Still photography brings a moving dimension to our Video Pick this week. Jeremy Cowart's "They Will See God," is a moving tribute to individuals who have survived difficult life struggles and natural disasters. Born of the Nashville photographer's experience taking pictures of natural disasters in Haiti and Franklin, TN, Cowart's photographs capture the tragedy of devastation and the exhilaration of the human spirit. 

This socially conscious photographer is not alone, by the way. Check out Help-Portrait - they're a worldwide groundswell of photographers who give of their time, gear, and talent to give back to people in need.
