Convergence Convergence Convergence

Another big announcement today! Yes the mother ship, National Geographic, has entered the assignment business with the announcement of a new business National Geographic Assignment. Under the helm of Alice Keating, a NG veteran, they will begin be representing 27 photographers covering all facets of assignment photography, even fashion.

Back in the fall, World Picture News, announced that they were changing their business model to focus exclusively on assignment work, so it looks to be more than a trend.

Dispatches Magazine Debut

The long awaited debut of Dispatches Magazine finally happened today. VII founder, Gary Knight, is behind the magazine that hopes to break the mold of photojournalism oriented media.  Just read the mission statement as it's a criticism of the current news media an argument for more independent news.  I wish them all the success.
