BD, a producer of medical devices used globally to combat urgent healthcare issues, hosted a breakfast chat with MaryAnne Golon and winners of the Global Health Photography Competition—including Corbis’ own Carlos Cazalis.
The discussion advised photographers on exposing their photojournalism to the media through soft and tough approaches. BD encouraged photographers to pursue stories that they are passionate about as a way to secure better funding for their projects.
Covering the topic of human illness requires an inordinate amount of planning. Photographers must identify the right organization to work with and then relay between patients and NGOS before hard-fought efforts to get the story placed. As Nick Nichols stated, “… we can be the voice of these issues by supplying visuals that can make changes… our value to the world is communication.”
