      Reflections of the current era of photojournalism; from a working press in the digital age to body cams.

      Our master lecture will explore the perspectives of three working photojournalists, all adjusting the current economic realities of making a living at their craft, and the physical, technical and political imperatives of documenting our current [often divided] society. FMoPA is working to identify three photojournalists with connections to Tampa Bay that have amassed a diverse body of work. The lecture will be structured as hybrid form of Q&A with a presentation of the photographer’s work so participants can get an idea of their aesthetic, experience and working conditions. The moderator will be FMoPA board member and Tampa Bay Business Journal Editor-in-Chief Alexis Muellner. Each of the panelists will take turns 1-1 to describe their work in 20-minute segments, sharing some of their favorite work with the audience. Then, all three will come together for a short, final discussion. In addition, the moderator will introduce an additional 15-20 minute discussion with the appropriate member of the Pasco County Sherriff’s Office to discuss body cameras. Pasco uses them at all times and is one of the few counties in Tampa Bay to do so. It also participates in A&E’s hit documentary show Live PD. That session will likely follow the third photographer’s 1-1. All sessions will provide ample audience Q&A. It will run from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. with short breaks before adjourning for a reception and networking.
