Nathalie Applewhite is the managing director of the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, a nonprofit journalism organization dedicated to promoting in-depth engagement with global affairs through its support of quality international journalism across all media platforms and an innovative program of outreach and education. She joined the Pulitzer Center in 2006, shortly after its founding, and has played a key role in the development of the Center’s model and approach towards journalism initiatives, multimedia development and educational outreach. And she was the managing producer on a number of the Center’s interactive projects, including the Emmy award-winning LiveHopeLove.
Before joining the Center, Nathalie worked nationally and internationally on documentaries, educational, political and commercial productions as a producer, director, and editor. She also worked as a consultant for the Executive Office of the Secretary General at the United Nations and as a project manager and media specialist for the University of Pennsylvania. Nathalie’s film Picture Me an Enemy (2002), about two young women from the former Yugoslavia, was screened nationally and internationally in film festivals and universities and won the Best Documentary Award in the Philadelphia Film Festival’s Festival of Independents. Nathalie holds a master’s degree from the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) at Columbia University, where she concentrated in International Security Policy with a regional concentration in the Middle East. While pursuing her degree, she served as a delegate on the Center for International Conflict Resolution’s US-Syria Citizen’s Exchange program. Nathalie received a BA in Visual Anthropology from Temple University, and completed international programs in France, Latin America, and Japan.

BP Miller is the entrepreneur and award-winning photographer behind Chorus Photography, based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His studio and his work have been published in national publications such The New York Times, Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Style Magazine, and many more. Chorus Photography focuses their lenses on a range of client stories from local, family run businesses to international celebrities, politicians, and dignitaries and so much more. BP started the studio 11 years ago and now has it to more than 7 contractors working with him. Last year, Chorus expanded its team and national reach to include a new venture in San Francisco with Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist Scott Strazzante. Chorus specializes in creating innovative, storytelling packages for their clients and believes the photography business should be equal parts fun and hard work or you’re doing it wrong. A passionate advocate for photographer’s rights, BP is the elected Regional Chair (Mid-Atlantic) for the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) and has volunteered his limited free time to speak across the country educating both photographers and business people alike about non-profit photography, business skills, and photojournalists’ rights. You can normally bribe an hour of his time with a good bottle of red wine and the understanding he will likely bring out photos of his amazingly expressive, well documented pup.
