Here is part one of an interview I recorded with MultimediaShooter founder Richard Koci-Hernandez. Richard has been shooting photos for the San Jose Mercury News for more than a decade, and has recently transitioned into a multimedia shooter and producer for the paper. He has a great backstory and a lot to say about the past, present and future of newspaper multimedia.
On a technical note this was recorded with a Marantz PMD 660 and a M-Audio Aries condensor microphone. It was edited with a combination of Audacity and Garage Band, and the music was provided by my friend and former bandmate forbidden donut. I learned an interesting lesson while recording this. A cell phone receiving a call near a recorder can cause a nasty clipping in your audio, so turn off your cell phone when recording.
Hope you enjoy,
