Matt Pearl – 2013 Solo Video Journalist of the Year

We talk to Matt Pearl about telling great stories, and doing it alone.

Matt referred to a tip he was given years ago. “Back-time your day.” he says. “It involves really understanding your own skill-set, how long it takes you to shoot a story, to log a story, to log 10 minutes of tape vs 20 minters of tape.” He says knowing how long it takes you do to these things keeps you “locked in” and working under a rigid schedule, and that’s what you need to turn great stories alone and under pressure. You can watch his story “Still Seeing the Hand of God” and other winning stories below.

Anne Herbst – 2013 West General Photographer of the Year

We talk to Anne Herbst about what it takes to tell great stories.

Anne is somewhat unique in that she has embraced all sides of storytelling, especially the writing. “I was a newspaper reporter before I was a television photojournalist, which is really kind of an odd path, but I felt like it was a way to set me apart.” She says.  “The writing is something that I’ve always loved and I’ve grown to love it even more. I love helping people with their writing, and I think it’s important if you think you are able to do it, you should always take a stab at it.”

You can find “The Heartbeat of a City” and Anne’s other winning 2013 stories in the playlist below.
