Scott Olson

Scott Olson was back in Missouri covering the protests over the killing of Vonderrit Myers Jr. by an off duty St. Louis police officer. The St. Louis area has been struggling to heal since riots erupted in suburban Ferguson following Michael Brown’s death on August 9, 2014.

Chris McGrath

Chris is one of many photographers who has been covering the Hong Kong protests. Thousands of pro democracy supporters have occupied the streets surrounding Hong Kong’s Financial District during protests which began in September. Police have begun to take measures to remove the blockades put in place by pro democracy supporters following weeks of protests. Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying called for talks to resume between protest groups and government officials and said his government is ready to meet with student leaders to discuss ‘universal suffrage.’

Veronique de Viguerie

Reportage by Getty Images photojournalist Veronique de Viguerie was interviewed by BBC World Service Radio on their ‘Outlook’ segment. Her interview, titled ‘Chasing Militants while Pregnant’, was broadcast on 13 October at 12pm to a global audience of 188 million, running for 14 minutes. During the feature, coordinated by the Reportage by Getty Images team, Veronique discusses her illustrious career and extensive experience. “They were very young Taliban, so they all had cell phones. Some of them had Britney Spears ringtones on them. They started taking some selfies with us, so I thought then that I could take some pictures of them. The first half an hour everyone was stressed and looking at each other without doing much; it was very tense. After I took out my camera and started taking a few pictures, and I showed them, it was easier….when I know a picture is important I don’t really think that much about anything else.” – Veronique de Viguerie.
