On this episode of The Photo Brigade podcast, I chat with a good friend and Photo Brigade’s very own Pixel Pimp, Warren Winter. We met at the poker table while I was an intern at the New York Times. Born in to a photojournalist family, he watched his father cover a range of sporting and news events. He’s lived in Prague, New York City and Chicago, worked for a slue of photo agencies like Sipa, Zuma, WPN, Polaris, WireImage, and now runs his own agency called PSG and has become a book publisher on top of it all. We talk about everything from licensing your archives, negotiating with a range of clients, contracts, the economics of self-publishing, and one of the scariest days of his life covering the 9/11 attacks in New York. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of the Photo Brigade Podcast.
