photography for the last 15 years and doing it pretty much full time I’ve just been director of photography and I’m director of photography at our station now. All along as new equipment and new tools come in you have to stay on top of your editing skills and marry it in with your photography. And, uh, so that you have a complete package. And then you work on your writing and storytelling and all these other things that come into play to be a well-rounded kind of renaissance photojournalist that I am today. Cause we’re expected to do many many things and be good at em all. At least that’s my expectations of my photography and my editing staff. Keren: So is that how it works for the whole staff ? Like all the photographers edit packages as well? Eric: Yeah, we believe in ownership and enterprise and if you find a story or get assigned a story we want them to be involved in the entire process. Concepts and context and going out and shooting it and doing interviews and gathering all the material and coming back and working with the reporter and helping em 76 script it and approving scripts and changing things around and giving em ideas and perfecting scripts. And then, ah, usually the photographers edit their own packages. Keren: So you actually, I didn’t realize this, but you were an editor first. Eric: Mm hmm. I started out as an editor. Keren: And you learned to edit in the internship? Eric: Mm hmm. Keren: What did you edit on? Eric: We were tape-to-tape. And it was, I can’t remember the name of the machine, but it was tape-to-tape. It was all linear and um it had a couple super suites where you could do dissolves and effects and wipes and things like that. Um, but that was it. We had no computer editing. Keren: Tell me about the differences that you see. I mean tell me about what editing was like back then. Eric: Well, it was a lot more time consuming because you only had two channels of audio and if you want to do music or mixed versions you’d have to lay an audio track and you’d have to mix it together in the suite where you could bring four channels together. So there was a lot of dubbing down and loss of generation. We used to have to build an AB roll too if you wanted to build a package with dissolves

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
