Find out what it’s like to be an AP photographer in Washington DC
Andrew Harnik says he probably waited a few years longer than he should have to apply for his dream job, but can you blame him? As a Washington DC native, he grew up with the Washington Post at the breakfast table. And when he began a career in photojournalism, the photos that the Post published became a professional benchmark for him.
He was initially intimidated by reaching out for a long-standing goal, but eventually went on to work for the Post. Now, he’s a photographer with the Associated Press, and in this recent feature produced by InFrame, discusses the challenges of his role at the AP compared to a newspaper. ‘An event that we cover here also has to be helpful for a newspaper in Israel or London,’ says Harnik. It’s an interesting look into a photojournalist’s world in the fast-moving scene that is the US’s capitol city.
