As a wordsmith, I’ve always focused on writing and its ability to tell a story. But I’ve also admired how photographers and the photojournalists I’ve had the pleasure of working with tell stories just as effectively.
Sometimes more effectively.
I have taken my fair share of photos, too, as a journalist. And I understand the lure of framing and composing just the right shot. Not that I’m great at it, but I recently came across many of my photos — not all taken for professional reasons — that still reasonate.
Some were published, others were taken for personal reasons. So I decided to upload them to this website’s portfolio pages, since I still take a photo every now and then for a story I’ve been assigned. It is another skill I’ve developed over my career, and that’s what this site is all about, right?
Take a look if you are so inclined and, as with all my posts, feel free to leave a comment.
