Ep 307: The art of storytelling with guest documentary photographer Penny Stephens

When you’re a photojournalist like Penny Stephens, you need to be ready to shoot at a moment’s notice, be able to capture the emotion and reality of the situation – and tell a story in a single image. Penny reveals her insights from her award-winning career including 22 years working for the respected newspaper, The Age. Penny discusses: how she prepares for a shoot to ensure she is ready to run out the door to capture a breaking story at a moment’s notice; her thought process for capturing images that tell a story; the transition from staff to freelance photographer; her experience being embedded with the Australian Defence Forces in Afghanistan; balancing work and family life and the importance of self care; the importance of personal projects; and much more.
