True story: Erin Brethauer squeezed in our podcast between a vacation on the beach and an interview with the BBC.
I was surprised when she told me this, but I should not have been.
In the eight months I have known Brethauer, she has always impressed me with her willingness and enthusiasm to take on any challenge. The multimedia editor and staff photographer for the Asheville Citizen-Times, she hit the road with our Gannett Turbovideo squad despite having less than a week’s notice. Through her young career, she has excelled at photography with a variety of cameras, from the traditional to the phone-based.
And her latest achievement?
For one week this month, Brethauer ran the Instagram account for the New Yorker, the prestigious magazine with more than 82,000 Instagram followers.
This week, Brethauer joins me for Episode #7 of the Telling The Story podcast. We discuss the future of photography, her work with the New Yorker, and which cameras are best for which situations.
In this preview, she explains how Instagram affected the way she approached the project that got her the New Yorker gig: a week taking iPhone photos at a camp for children with autism, Camp Lakey Gap.
