Workshop

»Picture Editing for Print, Web and Mobile«

Workshop with Kevin Mertens

During the week-long workshop, we will introduce you to the most important principles of working as a photo editor in the digital age of journalism.

“The report needs to become more visual” states the New York Times, as its first point in its recently published 2020 strategy paper. Visual experts will play a decisive role in the future of digital journalism, as the demand for high quality visual content grows. But the job of a photo editor has become more complex.

Print is no longer the central medium and it is continuously losing relevance. Despite that, the trend is moving towards higher-quality print products, as the readers have increased demands in regards to content and form. But web, apps, and other mobile formats will determine the future of journalism. Through technological developments such as high-resolution touch-screen displays, ever-improving responsive web design and a new understanding of the importance of sophisticated editorial and UX design in digital products, the reading experience, e.g. on the iPad or iPhone, is more attractive than ever before. The modern photo editor should be familiar with all platforms, and should be able to move within the sphere of social media. Photo editors are experts in the area of ​​visual storytelling, and the interface between text, image, graphics and web developers.

Course Contents:

  • The Photo Editor: What qualifications does the journalistic photo editor require in the digital future? What is his role in the digital newsroom?
  • Photo-Searching: How and where to find strong journalistic photography? By which criteria should the image material be selected?
  • Visual Storytelling: How to tell stories with images?
  • Digital publishing platforms: What publication-channels and narrative formats exist? How can one develop individual imaging concepts?
