On this episode Robert Caplin chats with Atlanta-based photographer Melissa Golden. As a return guest on the podcast, this was Melissa’s first since we’ve begun video podcasting, so it’s extra exciting to not only share her fun stories of covering everything from celebrity portraiture, DC politics, forest fires and more, but we get to see her work too. We talk about her career path and the importance of networking both online and in person to keep her name at the top of editors lists. We also talk about how she works with a photo agency and how it benefits her on both the journalistic and commercial side with negotiation and administrative work. We learn her 5-year goal and also get her advice to youngsters who hope to start a career in photojournalism. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of The Photo Brigade Podcast!
