  • Good work! I might add that it is really important to have excellent photos and video. Hire a good photojournalist who can take stills, video (and knows how to catch audio) and write. It can be done. But before you sign a contract with anyone, see their work and have a PLAN to use the materials that the photog brings back to you. The more you prepare, the more impact your story will have. Renee@Rosensteel.com
