‘A picture needs to hit you in the gut’: John Bulmer Talks Photography

John Bulmer, eminent photojournalist and film-maker, talks about what newspapers want and how Derek Evans helped him realise what that was. Photojournalism is not just about fantastic photography, Bulmer says, but the shots have to be about something interesting – they have to arrest your attention – and, more to the point, they have to be of interest to a particular paper in order to sell. This sounds easier said than done! It’s fascinating listing to how Derek Evans influenced Bulmer at this early stage – right at the beginning of his career.
