National Geographic editor tells how photography changed her life
Photographer, producer and Senior Photo Editor at National Geographic, Pamela Chen first picked up a camera at around 9 months old. Although she was pointing the camera the wrong way, as children often do, the photo that Chen shares with us in this video is a sweet memento. During the video, which is sponsored by Microsoft OneDrive, Chen tells the story of how capturing one blurry photograph when she was a college student changed the course of her life. She also explains why photography is a natural fit for her and provides a glimpse into one of her first National Geographic assignments.
As a senior photo editor, Chen is tasked with reviewing each frame that comes in for a story. She says that's around 10,000-60,000 images per story. You can find out more about Chen on her website.
