The Photo Editors Series is a series of conversations with well-known photo editors about how they view the media today, the role of visuals in reporting, the work they like to see, and advice for photographers on how best to connect with publishers.

Hosted by David Campbell and Ilvy Njiokiktjien, the series will combine an overview of the contemporary media landscape with practical tips. The editors in the series will speak as individuals rather than representatives of their organizations, and the event will be interactive with good opportunities for audience questions.

In this twelfth episode, we will speak with Carla Rosorius. She has been working as a photo editor for GEO since 2015 and was appointed Director of Photography in 2023.

David Campbell is the Director of VII Insider and the Education Director at The VII Foundation.
