G'day guys

I have been working as a war reporter and photojournalist for the last three years. I've been lucky enough for my photography to take me on crazy adventures around the globe and luckier to have survived them all.

Happy to answer any question about the line of work, and share some stories over the next few days while I sort my archive.

I am also trying to get the number on Instagram up, so I can justify uploading more photographs – if you are interested or just want to help out give me a follow @samjeder

whats your gear
>>
>>3874996
Did you shoot someone to death?
>>
>>3875000

Canon 5D IV
Canon 6D for backup
70-200 2.8 something
16-35 F4
35 F2
50 F1.4
20-105 F (almost never use this one anymore)
Some flash gear
And recently I picked up a GoPro for behind-the-scenes stuff.
>>
do you carry all the gear at once or only the lens you know you will be used in certain situation?

you must have carry two bodies at all time one with wide and one with telephoto i assume.
>>
>>3874996
Why are there so many books but hardly any shelves there?
>>
>>3874996
That's not street. They don't have a choice about being photographed, what are they going to do, field an army to stop you?
>>
>>3875006
It depends a lot on what im doing.
I am not really a big fan of running around with two cameras at once, makes moving around a bit of a pain. And I find being comfortable and motivated to move around is better than having 2 lenses ready to go at all times.

I have a belt pouch system (you can see it in the photo above), while the idea sounds a bit awkward it is bloody perfect. Changing lenses is so easy I really don't need to use two bodies all the time. So I carry all my main kit in there, and if need be I have a backpack with other stuff nearby.
>>
>>3875008
Guessing they ripped took out the shelves to use in their makeshift barracks in a nearby building. Or to use as firewood, since damp books are actually pretty hard to burn.
>>
>>3874996
1. how did you start your career in war photojournalism? any advice for someone trying to get into this field?
2. if you had to keep only 1 lens per camera, how would your kit look like?
3. your thoughts on mirrorless systems?

1) I reached a turning point in my photography. I had been spending all of my free time, and money taking pics since a pretty young age. Eventually, I realized I had gotten really good at making nice photos. The kind of photos you would hang on a wall. But they didn't have any soul, meaning, or value other than aesthetic.

I compared my work to the photographers who had inspired me in the first place, and realized I needed to do something drastic, or give up that part of my life. So I quit my job within the photo industry, and spend a couple of months finding contacts and planning a trip to a war zone. I wasn't exactly looking for a war, but I wanted something organic, raw, intense, and maybe a little dangerous. And so I ended up in Ukraine.
There I got lucky enough to find some good stories, and it kept me afloat.

2) Despite never having touched one, I think it would be a 24-70 F2.8. And then a trusty 70-200 on the other camera (just to make life easier). I used to be a big fan of lop DOF, but I eventually grew out of that phase. For a photojournalist, the environment and context of a photo are pretty important in my mind.

3) Mixed feelings. I don't plan on buying one anytime soon. I also am only interested in canon stuff, I can't be bothered to relearn what had become second nature to shoot on the canon system.

I beat the shit out of my gear, like most people in this line of work, so they would need to be just as durable. Also, the lenses are way too big and heavy at the moment and don't offer too many advantages. If they can make mirrorless just as capable and robust, I think I would be open-minded.

Pic related: shooting in -20 on top of a mountain. My mate's mirrorless camera just stopped working halfway through the night, the canon had no problem.

Here's another example of how "photojournalism" is a total fraud and a scam and has nothing whatsoever to do with true facts.
>>
>>3875025
I can see where you are coming from, which is why I often choose to say I am a documentary photographer than anything with 'journalist' in the title. I don't want to get political, which I try to also avoid in my work.

What interests me is people and their stories, rather than trying to construct an image about ongoing events by selectively shooting one side of the story.
>>
>>3875038
You'll never sell anything with truth, if you are hoping for any of the outlets to take work. They exist exactly and only as liars. They do nothing else.
>>
ever think about getting into video?
>>
>>3875043

Are there any outlets (international) who you think are halfway decent?
>>
>>3875044

A little bit. I am not a big fan of the extra effort that video takes. But if there is a specific thing worth filming, or if someone convinces me it makes much better money than I dont see why not
>>
>>3875046
Actually this is one of the reason why its very important for me to have a camera that is good in both video and photos. We are moving away from photos and toward documenting with video and having a small FF camera with 8 bit colors is going to allow me to do things that i could only do with a heavy shoulder cam in the past.

Maybe a good reason for you to check out the R6
>>
>>3875064
10 bit colors not 8 bit
>>
>>3875065

What is a good rig which could do that?
Camera body, lens + the rest
>>
>>3875067
Any sony or cannon mirrorless and a 24-70 f2.8 lens. Need 10 bit colors and 4k 60p

Just need to get good at switching from photos and video because they need to be expose differently.

My advice would be to think about it twice. Its reallu, not the same kind of work my mentors did during the 80s and 90s. Today the value images is at an all time low, while there also being tones of them thanks to smartphones now being common everywhere.

Most people who do this, do it on holidays and as self funded projects. My advice would also be, to be careful what you wish for.

Things can get lonely, and dark. And depending on the kind of person you are, you might end up missing it when its over – which I think might be the biggest danger of all. If you really want to roll the dice mentally and physically. Then get a mentor, do lots of research, get a press pass, organise fixers, find legit insurance agency and then just go for it. But expect the process before u end up in a conflict zone to take months or years if you want to do it right. At the end of the day it is a life-changing experience, and even if no one will buy your photos of the story, you will walk away with a perspective very few humans get to have.

When I am working on this series yeh I do. But it, as you might be able to imagine carrying, and using lights on the frontline, is a terrible terrible idea. Not many people have done it. But I think the photos made the danger, and hassle worth it.

Hmm, I think the 16-35 is actually one of my most used lenses. When working in trenches, tight foxholes, and abandoned tows it really is perfect. Maybe a 24-70 would be better. For my portraits its always the 70-200.

I would use the 35 and 50 more often, but they have seen better days and the AF is not what it used to be.

Example of the 16-35 in use bellow, shot at 16mm

No worries mate.

Yeh, that's a tough one. In this conflict, it's pretty rare for snipers and whatnot to target journalists since neither side wants to be framed as being violent. In the past I have actually stripped off all of my press signs on my vest to hide that I was a journo, since as soon as the other side realises there is a member of the press there they start behaving well.

The reason I chose to put it on the car: It is an old 4WD, the kind of car which is commonly used by local military, or worse, militia forces. Bc of the type of car, and areas I was driving in it made sense to put it out there, since it would be more dangerous for me to be mistaken as enemy forces.

I remember my first day on the frontline, I asked if the other side target journalists. The soldiers didn't know and said I should stand up (we were in a foxhole) and see for myself hahaha.

Too young lol. So young that if I had made any mistakes, getting myself into trouble, or not won a couple of awards following my first tour, there would be more than one article out criticizing the hell out of me, and maybe my family. Last year a filmmaker wanted to make a documentary about my life, I got the feeling it was going to focus on my age and previous experience too much so I turned it down.

Yeh, that's a tough question. Its a tough job, there is not doubt about that – even just on interesting projects which are not in war zones. As I said earlier, things get lonely, and it does take a toll. But I still love it, and I think im lucky for how well it's gone for me so far. A quote I really like is "all in all its worth it, even for the little victories, standing by as a witness to the dark rumblings of history".

Most people who do this full time, spend most of their year photographing Antifa rallies, press conferences or other boring shit. Right now I work full time for a big new agency (I cant say who), which allows me to travel and work on my own projects as I like. Having that kind of support, credibility and connections can make all the difference.

But, for the real long term, I have been considering studying Paramedicine, building on my past experiencing working as an EMT. I think that, would be the most satisfying kind of normal work. Considering everything I have seen I don't think I could be at peace working in an office, or any job I feel to be 'meaningless'. Might even go into the army as a medic. It is strange to think I sometimes miss being shot at, but its pretty common.

Your sagacious war-snapper wisdom is Tumblr-level teenage-girl-diary drivel with the additional aspect of being EGREGIOUSLY VILE. You're just another war-profiteer, but you're trying to make it into some sort of noble artistic cause, when the fact of the matter is that you're a random cunt with a camera who has mistaken an anonymous imageboard for a blog. You decided to make money off of suffering but don't even have the balls to accept that simple fact, and you come here to talk about "meaningless" jobs when all you do is capture misery for money and then market it as thought-provoking.

Oh, you couldn't be at peace working in an office? Awwww. :( How about all the victims of war whose funerals you steal for money. Do you think those dead bastards would be "at peace working in an office"? Were their squalid lives "meaningless" until you graced their misery with your fucking camera? How nice that you have the support, credibility, and connections to monetize human suffering but with the utter peace of mind that comes from the remove of "hey it wasn't me guys war is bad mkay ARTARTART?"

Grow the fuck up. Your total lack of self-awareness is fucking disgusting. Perhaps you can transmute all that courage you've developed in

are you planning to go back there?

>>3875796
the main problem of posting it being a photojournalist is that people like to ruin your day just for fun. Many trolls.

At least, as I'm following from far the politics, being from 4chin isn't much a problem for this conflict in specific. Many people around here are truly shilling for Russia, or shilling for Pravda Sector and acting as 'rebels' etc

Yeh, but as the same time images of a quiet frontline dont tell, and more importantly they dont reflect what is really going on. So a few times I have removed any press insignia to blend in. Those times its been a little different, and people have taken shots at us.

Im am eyeing up some other projects in non-war zones yet, but if someone had an assignment for me I will defo head back. But for Ukraine in general, I am a lot more interested in the separatist side at the moment, since it is very underreported in international media.

Ahh thats not a problem. A lot of the criticisms are valid, there is a reason its been branded as such a dirty job.

Here's what I want you to do, you spineless do-nothing go-nowhere NEET zoomer sack of shit: find 100 retired military personnel and ask them whether they have the same level of self-appreciation and self-satisfaction that this fucking piece of ABSOLUTE HUMAN TRASH does. What you'll find, after your poll, is that the only people who revel in this kind of shit are SIDELINE SELFIE FAGGOTS who cannot into the pure fucking hell of actual fucking war. He's not telling a story. HE IS A CARPETBAGGING CUNT who trades in MISERY PORN. Fuck you, fuck OP especially, and fuck this pure abomination of a thread.

I know I'm not the only person on the planet who is looking forward to the public executions of journalists. I might be the only one on /p/ willing to take the ban for saying so, but I pray every night for their excruciating, signal-sending deaths. Heads on pikes to let the rest of them know. Burned to a crisp. Exsanguinated, dismembered, and cast to the foul winds. Made examples of. Liveleak -> .webm pipeline. I live for the hate I have for journalists and the promise of seeing them in a pit grave.

What's truly astounding to me is that the journo-fellators ITT would, if queried, probably decry the horrors of war, would probably admit that journalism is a failed institution, would probably understand that monetized propaganda is a net negative for a functioning society, but, when put in the context of gearfaggery, will suck the first corporate cock to come along and reduce any criticism, or even the possibility of criticism, to what lens and what body were used. Zero principles, zero thought, zero foresight, zero anything other than the basest, saddest, most animalistic drive to consoom. Cameras, lenses, grief, horror, doesn't matter. JUST. FUCKING. SOOOOOOOOOOOOM.

It's not up to the Russians, not officially anyway, or to my own belief. They let very very few people in. I think it is to protect against spooks, western propaganda, and to protect journos – since there is still a pretty big rift between the rebels and their government. I made it clear that I had worked closely with Ukraine when I applied for my press accreditation, and to the shock of myself and many others, they approved me. MY DPR press pass was number 40-something, my Ukrainian one was 2000-something.

Yeh, I do have tinnitus. Before I got into the line of work I loved watching (still do) Archer, and all the tinnitus jokes. Now the quote 'I need to sleep with the fan on' has a bit of a different meaning. My tinnitus isn't from a large number of gunshots, rather guns being fired inside concrete buildings (that shit is dangerous).

There is not really one method of getting agreements. It's been different every time, and from what I hear it's also been different for other fens in the field. I always inform several outlets first and see if they are interested in anything. But before that comes getting all the baseline paperwork out of the way, press pass, accreditation – stuff that actually lets you work in the area. Once you are on the ground, the normal procedure (not what I do) would be to get everything else figured out by your fixer – essentially a tour guide for reporters who has all the right contacts.

Let me know if I should explain this better.

Young, I like to be judged by my work, and the references of those I have worked with rather than my age. But at the same time not much older than many of the local soldiers fighting on the front.

I left home and moved to South-East Asia at 16, after a long history of moving throughout my life. So by the time I landed in my first conflict zone I had already been around a bit. So I didn't just wake up one day and head to a conflict zone, I had found my way to plenty of sketchy places beforehand.

Yeh, I have thought about it in the past. I have been a big fan of the 7D lineup for a long time. If I used two cameras at the same time, I think I would make the switch. Also, I think that the low light performance of canon's crop sensor cameras would need to make a big jump in performance before actually being used in such places.

That's great, those faggots who have everything arranged beforehand are usually very partial and end up acting as propagandists sometimes without even knowing they're tools

Maybe it does, but the way I see it there's nothing like reflex.
Mirrorless is a soulless appliance and often prioritizes shaving weight and size over everything so you get brittle garbage with a tendency to overheat, not to mention the problems with EVFs and battery life.

>>3874996
I've been close enough to conflict, as a photographer, to know that I never want to go there again. War is an industry and a business and a political dick contest and a manufactured illusion of various versions of power; and - perhaps worst of all - it's an ego-trip. It's certainly an ego trip for all of the photographers and journalists who go there to see it, almost all of whom are being deliberately and dangerously misled and morally and mentally butt-fucked. It's even an ego-trip and a funding-fight for the aid agencies that go along for the ride, which - for all of the good that they do (and some of them do a lot of good indeed) - are in active rivalry with one another for projects, prestige and money. Every war is a crime, every headline is a lie, and every dollar is dirty. So, do something useful with your life instead. Become a nurse or a teacher or a librarian or a bicycle mechanic. You'll always be doing something useful; and you'll never add to the hatred.
