On this episode I chat with a blast from my past, Jim DeCamp, a freelance photographer based in Columbus, Ohio. I grew up seeing Jim’s photos on a daily basis in the Columbus Dispatch where he spent over a decade as a staffer. It was at the Dispatch where I met Jim and worked with him and a host of great shooters over 10 years ago. We talk about his transition from staff to freelance, contests, copyright, business, and how he started his career in photojournalism following a 1978 military helicopter crash he photographed as a middle schooler for the Cincinnati Enquirer. So sit back, Relax, and enjoy this episode of The Photo Brigade podcast recorded last month from my mother’s home in Ohio!
