Photopod is an interview podcast about the photography industry, hosted by Neil Binkley, Founder of The Personal Photography Project. You’ll learn from the people who hire or support photographers – from ad agencies, magazines, brands, plus the fine art world. We'll discuss marketing, budgets, motion work, personal work, and many other topics that help define what it means to be a photographer, or to use photography, in this ever-changing business landscape.
Amy Feitelberg, Photo Creative Lead at Square (formerly Photo Director of Outside and Los Angeles magazines) — Part 1
Amy Feitelberg, Photo Creative Lead at Square, is a great interview for so many reasons. I love that she's had her feet in both the branding and magazine worlds. Brands like Apple, HBO, as well as Square, are hiring people with editorial experience. She’s produced great work for magazines, while Photo Director of Outside and Los Angeles magazines — and now at Square’s in-house mag, The Reader. Plus, she’s founding Curator of Images For Humanity — a photo charity supporting Ukraine that involves an amazing list of photographers. This is Part 1 of our discussion: I recommend starting on this episode first, and then listen to Part 2. It’ll make more sense that way.
