In my 30 years at The Hartford Courant, I’ve covered poignant and diverse stories around the state of Connecticut and the world; from life in Hartford’s last housing project to the America’s Cup in western Australia.
In addition to photographing every president since Gerald Ford, I’ve also shot the NCAA Final Four in Texas, the GOP National Convention in New York and the San Francisco earthquake of 1989.
Most photojournalists say that their profession is the best gig in the world. They are right. Every day is different. Every assignment requires quick thinking and a lot of problem solving. In the end, we push ourselves to produce a special image. And then we get to sign our work. How cool is that?
In addition to shooting, writing and producing multimedia presentations for the Courant, Courant.com and FoxCt television, I am also teaching journalism courses at two Connecticut colleges.
