GEO Saison’s Rogers reveals favourite Editor’s Choice images
GEO Saison's picture editor Karin Rogers has selected her favourite travel, landscape and architecture images from those submitted to Editor's Choice 2 in September by CPN readers around the world.
In a multimedia presentation she chooses 32 pictures and talks in detail about her favourite ones. She also gives advice to photographers hoping to make a career in travel photography. Rogers told CPN: "Ten years ago [GEO Saison] would have been content with showing beautiful, calm landscapes. Nowadays that's not enough - you want to meet the people [of a destination], you want something more personal, livelier, more action."
Rogers said that her final choices are all images that would be considered for inclusion in GEO Saison. She encouraged photographers to approach the magazine and to be very decisive when they do their image edits. "Being a travel magazine, we want to show the beautiful world. [Our stories] are always on the positive side."
Editor's Choice links photographers with the world's best photo editors. It allows CPN readers to have their work seen at the highest level and gives editors the chance to see new talent from around the world. Editor's Choice 2 follows the success of the first edition of Editor's Choice last year, in which more than 11,000 images were entered. Photographers using Canon cameras are able to upload their images for review by a leading picture editor. A different genre of photography is covered each month. For July, the category was sports photography and in September it was photojournalism. This month it's commercial, advertising and fashion photography, and David Harris from Wunderman is on hand to review your images - you can upload your pictures until 31 October.
Karin Rogers and CPN would like to thank all of those photographers who submitted their images to Editor's Choice 2.
