Update from the frontline: A second interview with Sebastian Meyer
Photojournalist Robert Capa once said, “If your photographs aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.”
That does not seem to be the problem for freelance photojournalist and co-founder of Metrography, Sebastian Meyer as you can see from the following video. In fact, sometimes it looks like he has gotten a bit too close.
We had the chance to meet up with Sebastian recently in Iraq to ask him about the communication challenges he’s faced and how mobile satellite communications, including Thuraya IP terminal are instrumental in helping him share his photographs with news outlets around the world.
Breaking the news is big business for journalists around the world in today’s extremely fast-paced information ecosystem.
He echoes the sentiments of journalists today, saying, “I’ve used satellite communications before and the freedom and reliability it brings is extremely useful. It can make the difference between breaking a news story and missing it. Or it means you can take part in an interview and not worry about the power going out just when you are going on air!”
