Although I am never in favor of talented people loosing their jobs, I am very interested in seeing what the Instagram community thinks about one of the largest newspapers in America firing their entire photography staff?
Chicago media critic Robert Feder (via Cult of Mac) is reporting that the newspaper is training its reporters in iPhone photography to photograph all of their photo content for features.
Sun-Times reporters will begin mandatory training on “iPhone photography basics” following elimination of the paper’s entire photography staff. “In the coming days and weeks, we’ll be working with all editorial employees to train and outfit you as much as possible to produce the content we need,” managing editor Craig Newman tells staffers in a memo.
