WPOW : Women Photojournalists of Washington launched a mentorship program this year for two members to team up to learn new skills. You could be one year in to the biz and be teamed with a veteran who wants to learn something new or vice versa. This week a great success story comes from mentorship partners Molly Roberts and Danielle Williams, who have been working on their multimedia skills together.
A senior photo editor Molly Roberts created a multimedia presentation for Smithsonian Magazine. The project focuses on photographer David Burnett and his experience covering the tourists who watched the launch of Apollo 11. The audio and still show is just entracing and a great slice of American History that will be held to a microscope for a long time thanks to this amazing piece. Great job and congrats!!!
