Bob Krist and Tom Kennedy worked at the National Geographic together in the 1980s and ’90s — Bob as a contributing editor/photographer at National Geographic Traveler magazine and Tom as Director of Photography.
Join them for what’s sure to be a fascinating discussion about still photographers moving to motion, diversifying one’s skill set to include writing, teaching, etc. as a business strategy and the personal value of late career philanthropic work.
