Greg Thompson on Hiring Photographers


Ran across this about 1 a.m. on SportsShooter

Stanley Leary has a really informative video interview with Greg Thompson, director of corporate communications at Chik-Fil-A, about his experience hiring photographers when he was director of communications for IBM.

Painful to hear, yet valid point: It’s not so much about your photography, it’s about you solving their problem.

It’s an interesting perspective. Definitely worth a watch. Or listen.

    Nice find Lindsey.
    And it is about solving their problems, not just being a great shooter.
