There used to be a service for photo editors where you could tell them what kinds of pictures you were looking for and they would blast it out to all their freelance photographers. It seemed like a good idea, but ultimately what ended up happening is you would be crushed by submissions, many of which had nothing to do with the request list and you had to wade through all of it to find your shots. I’ve often wondered if there was a better way to do this with technology that made it easy for the photo editor to review the images and vet the actual list and easy for the photographer to make the submission. One of the cool things I saw while working in NY was a system used by US Weekly and People where photographers could submit their images via ftp and they would be entered into an image database by a photo editor.
Anyway, I was wondering if I could post that kind of thing here and people would respond with their own work or point us in the right direction?
I have a photo editor looking for projects related to the economy: foreclosure, stimulus construction, homelessness, unemployment. It’s quite a big project so if you have a body of work in one of these areas or know where one exists leave a comment or send me an email with a link.
