The last day at work for the eight NGM staffers who were laid off on Tuesday will be this coming Monday, November 2, 2009. Which means they’ve been given less than one week’s notice to clear out their offices and say their goodbyes.
That’s deeply disappointing, but not really surprising. After all, if you’d spent a substantial portion of your adult life chasing cheetahs, studying cheetahs, photographing cheetahs, and admiring cheetahs… well, those years in the wild can change a guy.
“There are certain things a cheetah story has to have.
One of the most important things it has to have…
is a kill sequence.
And you’re always looking for that picture.”
â€” Chris Johns, NGM’s Editor-in-Chief
