I've been incredibly fortunate to be in the places I've been the past few years. I'm graduating in December (finally) and looking for jobs and internships in the photojournalism field. I love it. I love story telling, being right in the action, and being able to show the world from my point of view. (Don't worry, I'm still going to be shooting weddings and doing portraiture work as well, as I love doing that end of photography as well!)
So below are my up to date favorite photojournalistic shots. You may have seen some of these, but its nice to see these all in one place. (Captions are below each photo that were printed in the papers that that they were shot for.) Do you have any favorites?
