I had the opportunity to interview Tony Messano [2], an Atlanta-based art director, for a presentation I gave at the NPPA Convergence ’10 educational event in July. In this video, Tony offers some practical advice to photojournalists who wish to make the transition to advertising photography.

Stanley, great choice for an interview.

I had Tony as an instructor about 12 years ago at Portfolio Center. I would listen to this man. He knows what he is talking about.

I take the things I learned from him about advertising and still use them today.
