NGO Photography - A Day in the Life of PhotoJournalist Karl Grobl

Karl Grobl is a photojournalist documenting the relief efforts and development work of NGOs (non-governmental organizations). He has produced a video called Come Along for the Ride which shows his photographic process and what he is trying to accomplish with his photography.

We follow him at work on a two day shoot for his client Angkor Hospital for Children, Siem Reap, Cambodia. The video is designed to provide helpful insights for those hoping to break into NGO photography and for those who just want to be better visual storytellers.

Karl explains in the video that his camera must become the eye of the donor.

I need the people who view these photographs to see and feel what I am experiencing and the best way to accomplish this is to build the rapport necessary to make the subject comfortable with my presence.

Karl Grobl currently shoots with Nikon camera bodies using 17-35mm f2.8 and 70-200 f2.8 lenses.
