With dramatic and exciting stories, Carlos Miller reveals the secrets behind successful citizen journalism. Whether you're planning a publicity blitz for your cause, you're interested in the down-and-dirty practices of the police, or just want to be prepared for the moment you're the first on the scene, THE CITIZEN JOURNALIST'S PHOTOGRAPHY HANDBOOK book has everything you'll need to know to take newsworthy pictures and get them in front of a wide audience. You don't need a DSLR camera--though they can be useful--what is essential for citizen journalism is a cool head, an eye for a great angle, and the initiative to capture the moment. Let Carlos Miller show you how. Street photographers, campaigners, activists and photo bloggers will: learn their rights and gain the confidence to stand their ground when shooting in public; undertand their camera so they're always ready to shoot strong photos; see their newsworthy images go viral and find a wide audience.
Carlos Miller is a writer, reporter, blogger, videographer, and activist whose rabble-rousing brand of multimedia photojournalism has earned the attention of millions of online readers (as well as plenty of police along the way). His first-hand experiences of law enforcement motivated him to set up the massively successful blog Photography is Not a Crime. His work has appeared everywhere from USA Today, The New York Times and The Washington Post to Fox News, BoingBoing and the Columbia Journalism Review.
Carlos Miller has been the go-to guy for issues regarding the rights of photographers and citizen journalists. What makes his book so valid is the advice comes from someone with actual experience. He also brings along the experience from other pioneers in citizen journalism.
Whether you're an activist, blogger, hobbyist, freelancer, or professional... this book gives you a solid rundown on your rights as to take photos or shoot video. Despite photography not being a crime, photographers in all forms are often harassed, intimidated, assaulted, and arrested.
I can attest to the fact that photography rights aren't covered in many college journalism, photography, or broadcasting courses. Many journalists graduate college not knowing the laws that pertain to their craft. So surely, the average Joe or Jane isn't getting this information either.
I wish this book been available before I started shooting freelance news years ago. I would have learned ways to handle encounters with law enforcement better. Unfortunately, it's your responsibility to know your rights and this book will help greatly!
