Women in the news: thinking on their feet
Shoe coverage is an important sub-specialty in journalism. For example, France’s first lady, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. As you can see in this photo combo, we cover her shoes nearly as comprehensively as the rest of her.
So, you mean you have photographers who specialize in shooting women’s shoes at a news event?
Of course. That’s their sole purpose, so to speak.
And they work alone?
No, usually they team up with our handbag photographers.
