My Philosophy: In understanding just how to long-form a visual news story, I find it's critical to work with the photographer on an intimate level. Allowing them to make decisions independently, yet also sitting with them as they upload and tag their photographs. Giving them the chance to reflect upon why they are attracted to certain pictures over others is critical for a multitude of reasons; the most important of which is allowing them to understand that their efforts are central to the publication. As an editor, I not only give my support but also my concerns and try to come to a settlement. My job is just as much about compromise as it is about creating a good visual story.
