About Us

About 10 Frames Per Second

We're a weekly podcast exploring topics of photojournalism through the eyes of working photojournalists. Aiming to go beyond tech talk, 10FPS focuses on the heart of photojournalism: why and how we do what we do. Each week we will feature a new guest from the field and ask what drives them.
Hosted by J.M Giordano and Elena Volkova, produced by Audrey Gatewood and John Devecka at the WLOY studio at Loyola University Maryland.
