On this episode I chat with Elizabeth Griffin, photo editor for and the Hearst Corporation. We both found ourselves on an Acela Express train heading back to Manhattan from Boston where we both were on assignment covering an elaborate Gregory Heisler Sports Illustrated cover shoot in Boston. We had a great discussion about everything from print promotion to email marketing, pricing standards, the Eddie Adams Workshop, portfolio reviews, her background as an intern at VII, Getty’s new free embed function, social media, and much more. So sit back, relax, and have a cocktail with us on a severely delayed train back to New York City on this episode of The Photo Brigade Podcast!
