Photo Brigade Podcast #18 with Marko Georgiev
By Robert Caplin
is a staff photojournalist for The Record, a North Jersey Media daily newspaper. Georgiev’s international photo career spans over two decades, on four continents, in six hurricanes and two trips to Iraq for The New York Times. Georgiev is a licensed pilot, biker and sailor and hates selfies photos.
On this episode I make a house call to my good friend Marko Georgiev who was suffering from a back injury and taking it easy at home in New Jersey where he is currently a staff photographer at The Record. Marko is one wild and crazy guy… We met at a photojournalist’s poker table about 8 years ago when I was an intern for the New York Times. We talk about his ever-changing career in photography from his beginnings covering the Kosovo conflict in his region of the world, to moving to NYC, working for the New York Times both locally and embedded during the war in Iraq. He has some crazy stories from when he covered Hurricane Sandy in New Orleans and to close calls in Iraq. As always we talk about business and how Marko got into the world of photography. So sit back, relax, enjoy this episode of The Photo Brigade podcast!
