10FPS – A Photojournalism Podcast


Welcome to 10FPS, that’s “Frames Per Second” for you non-camera geeks out there. It’s the speed that a motor drive runs when you’re in the midst of the action and need to just capture everything. 10FPS is a podcast and radio show created by photojournalists about the craft and profession of photojournalism, but it’s intended for everyone. We won’t be digging into which f-stop the guest used, or why they prefer Canon over Nikon or anything too gear-specific. We’re about the ideas that drive photographers, the struggles they face in getting the right shot, how to avoid bringing their own biases to their assignments and more. We’re going to explore combat photography, documentary, news and more with guests from all over the world.


Your hosts are Elena Volkova, and J.M. (Joe) Giordano. The show is produced by Audrey Gatewood and John Devecka in the WLOY studios.

Elena Volkova was born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine, and moved to the U.S. in 1994. She earned two degrees from the Maryland Institute College of Art: an MFA in Studio Arts as well as a BFA in Photography.

Volkova is an Assistant Professor of Visual Arts at Stevenson University in Maryland.

Elena has received several recognitions and awards, including the Janis Meyer Traveling Fellowship, Hamiltonian Fellowship, Sondheim semi-finalist awards well as Vermont Studio Fellowship. She has exhibited her work regionally and internationally.

J.M. Giordano is an award-winning photojournalist based in Baltimore. His work has been featured in GQ, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Washington Post, The Baltimore City Paper, i-D Magazine, Discovery Channel Inc., Rolling-Stone, XLR8R. His work, from the Struggle series is in the permanent collections at the Smithsonian Museum of African American History and the Reginald Lewis Museum. In 2015 he was short-listed for the National Gallery’s Outwin Boochever Portrait Prize.

As the Photo Editor at The City Paper in Baltimore, Joe has shown he can take a beating and keep on shooting.


Audrey Gatewood is the shows incredibly patient steady guide, and officially her title is Producer, but Sage Guide might be better.

John Devecka records, edits and occasionally even finishes the shows in a timely manner by pure dumb luck.
