Instagram and other social media tools are transforming the way photographers, journalists and everyday users are documenting news around the world. In 2013, David Guttenfelder, the AP’s chief Asia photographer, won over a new audience after he became one of the first foreign photographers to be granted the ability to work in North Korea. He featured some of his most striking, intimate pictures from the Hermit Kingdom on Instagram. Guttenfelder will discuss the growing influence of social media on professional photography with TIME Photo Editor Kira Pollack and Instagram Community Leader Dan Toffey.
