Cory West

Facebook Photos has undoubtedly changed the way we think about photography. More than just a way to display our images to the world, it has essentially pioneered and perpetuated the idea of social photography. Engineering Manager Cory West talks about how people we don’t even know – “second order friends” – account for most of the activity on Facebook Photos. Cory also discusses how the plethora of information that’s now at our fingertips has actually contributed to memory loss: we often no longer remember specific facts, and instead reserve memory for how to find specific pieces of information.

Lucas Buick

Every two minutes we snap as many photos as humanity as a whole took in the 1800′s. And one person to thank (or blame, depending on how you look at it) is Hipstamatic CEO & Co-Founder Lucas Buick. Lucas and his team set out to make an app that would recreate the experience of analog photography. Its impact has helped to profoundly change the photography industry, as well as add to our seeming obsession with nostalgia.

Eileen Gittins

Eileen Gittins, CEO & Founder of Blurb, developed a company to help respond to the people who are interested and passionate about creating books. In the past, there were various gatekeepers in the publishing world who got to decide what we consume and what we pay money for. Now all that has changed – now we are seeing the democratization of media, and part of that has come from individuals creating photo books.

Alan Taylor

Alan Taylor understands that it’s human nature to want to tell stories, especially visually. Without that inherent need and desire, his work as Senior Editor for The Atlantic’s “In Focus” blog wouldn’t have a place in the industry. Alan takes us through some of the blog’s most popular and most powerful photo stories, and why he believes that finding the money to support these photographers is so essential.
