PODCAST: Laurence Watts – Visual Content Manager for Action Aid UK

Action Aid UK - Nepal Earthquake Fundraising Appeal
Chris King

In this episode of the Documentary Photography Review podcast I’m speaking to Laurence Watts – Visual Content Manager at the NGO ActionAid UK, responsible for commissioning stills imagery and video content for the organisation.

This is the first time I’ve interviewed someone who is not a photographer, and my intention is to explore more of what’s involved in being a current-day documentary photographer, beyond exploring stories and taking images – things like engaging with picture editors, getting funding, working with audio, and much more.

With Laurence I speak about what he looks for in a photographer when commissioning someone, the need to diversify your skills, how to get seen, and much more.
