Moving Stills – David Burnett

 

Moving Stills is a fascinating short film that shows what it was like to work with a photo agency as a photojournalist in 1978. The film follows photojournalist David Burnett as he takes on an assignment to document cowboys moving a herd of cattle in the American south west for Contact Press Images. What is great about this film is that it tells us the whole story from getting the assignment, deciding to taking the assignment, to selecting the photos, selling the photos to publishers, then seeing the finished product in magazines.
