Commissioning Photography

Emma Bowkett and Josh Lustig will discuss the way in which they work with photography at the Financial Times Weekend Magazine, one of the UK’s leading colour supplements. Ranging from the commissioning process, to identifying photo-stories, they will talk about the various ways photography is used within the magazine, as well as touching upon how best to pitch and present to editors; editing and creating a folio for reviews and meetings; the differences between presenting personal versus commissioned work, websites and social media.
