A Photographer's Journey: From Newspapers to Social Media

September 2009
Nieman Reports;Fall2009, Vol. 63 Issue 3, p27
The author details his experience of being a photojournalist. He spent his 17 years of his career with the "Philadelphia Daily News" as a staff photographer and eventually the newsroom's first video journalist. However, he considers his professional identity to splinter in 2007 when he began producing video news reports and found himself struggling to explain where anybody could find his work. He notes that his videos did not receive a lot of attention until he attended the Blog World Expo, where he learned about online distribution and monetization.
