We catch up with wildlife photographer extraordinaire, Sachtler and Canon Ambassador Thorsten Milse at Photokina 2016. In this episode we focus on the issues that have emerged with the democratisation of photography and video.
A lot has been written and said about the digital revolution, and how that has advanced our industry. By putting cameras in so many people’s hands, a lot of talent out there is rising to the surface, and creative visions are coming to life at a rate that would have been unthinkable a couple of decades ago. But now that almost everyone holds a decent enough photo and video camera right in their pocket in the form of smartphones, how can this phenomenon affect the livelihood of seasoned professionals out there?
Thorsten Milse shares with us his opinion, as well as his experience with some less-than-scrupulous companies. Definitely a great chat with a great photographer. Thanks, Thorsten!
