Favorites of 2011 - Photojournalism

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:

Mitt Romney speaks in Salt Lake

Soldiers come home from Afghanistan

People view art at the MET in New York

Condoleezza Rice visits BYU

Tourists "experience" the Bull at Wall Street in New York

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."
