Welcome to the new NPPA blog for ethics, “Ethics Matters.” The name was chosen for its dual meanings – we will discuss ethical issues in visual journalism which are essential to the credibility and continued viability of our profession. We will not be posting every day, but as issues arise that are of interest to the visual journalism community, we will have discussions among the three members of the NPPA Ethics Committee and guest commentators when appropriate. If you have comments or suggestions, you can email any or all of the three of us. We have found that there are enough differences among the committee members to make discussion quite lively.

The members of the committee are John Long, Steve Raymer and Peter Southwick.

John Long was a staff photographer and photo editor at The Hartford Courant for 35 years before retiring in2006. He went on to teach as an adjunct at the Newhouse School, Syracuse University for two semesters and had previously taught at Manchester Community College for many years. John was the President of NPPA in 1989-90 and has served as Ethics Chairman of NPPA for over ten years. He has written extensively on the ethics of photojournalism, produced a video that has been widely used in colleges and guest lectured all over the U.S. and in many foreign countries.

Steve Raymer was a National Geographic Magazine staff photographer for many years, he is the author of five books of photography, and he is a tenured full professor of journalism at Indiana University in Bloomington.

Peter Southwick is an Associate Professor of Journalism and director of the photojournalism program at Boston University. He was a staff photographer for the Associated Press for ten years, and photo editor and director of photography at The Boston Globe for ten years.

Our goal is to keep you informed in a timely and engaging manner. The study of ethics is not static; it is full of debate, nuance and widely divergent points of view. We hope to bring some structure and insight to the conversation.
