Photo Journal: Los Angeles Times – A Tale of Two Stories
Major metropolitan newspapers, with increasingly diverse, multi-cultural regions, face the incredible challenge of satisfying readers' interest for news, features, sports, and civic and social issues. Meeting these challenges requires journalists with passion and insight; trend-setting professionals, staying ahead of the curve, and blazing new trails, with both the kinds of stories they report, as well as the visual storytelling techniques they apply. Few dailies of this size meet these challenges as well as the staff of the Los Angeles Times.
Join us as Photo Journal takes a look at the inner workings of the Times' photography department, through the eyes of deputy director of photography Alan Hagman and staff photojournalist Robert Gauthier.
