I love photojournalism. It has forced me out into the world to see what is happening in my community. Would I have driven up to Salt Lake just to wait in line in the hot sun to hear Mitt Romney speak outside of a burger joint for about 5 minutes, had I not been paid to go shoot it? Probably not, but I'm glad I went because it was a great experience. That's why I love this type of photography.
Here are my photojournalism favorites from 2011:

Since I've graduated from BYU, I wont be shooting photojournalism as much, but I'm always looking for the opportunity. I had a great time with my experience at BYU's paper, "The Daily Universe."
