Welcome to 10FPS, that’s “Frames Per Second” for you non-camera geeks out there. It’s the speed that a professional motor drive runs when you’re in the midst of the action and need to just capture everything. 10FPS is a podcast and radio show created by photojournalists about the craft and profession of photojournalism, but it’s intended for everyone. We won’t be digging into which f-stop the guest used, or why they prefer Canon over Nikon or anything too gear-specific. We’re about the ideas that drive photographers, the struggles they face in getting the right shot, how to avoid bringing their own biases to their assignments and more. We’re going to explore conflict photography, documentary, news and more with guests from all over the world.
