Photofocus Podcast

Join Rich and Scott as they discuss the recent decision by the Chicago Sun Times to lay off their entire photography staff.  The decision was made to train their reporting staff to shoot with iPhones and to focus more on video.  Rich and Scott analyze what this means to the photo community.
