Over the course of the year I tend to post more sports photography than anything else here on my blog. Along with the new year I hope to change that with running updates of not only sports but my news assignments as well.
Since I started with the Herald & Review in May I have covered everything from tornado damage to the daily life of a clown. I’ve posted a few things like Decatur Celebration, but nothing from more of my daily work.
Here are 54 of my favorite news photos from my time with the Herald & Review so far.
My first breaking news event of the year found me as I was working on my resume for my upcoming job search. A structure fire in Mattoon, Ill., was reported just before midnight on Thursday, and within a few minutes a fellow photographer and I were making our way to cover it. This was the first fire I covered since my time in Reno over the summer, and the situations’ atmospheres couldn’t have been farther apart. Sweating in the hot Nevada sun while covering the final stages of a fire was contrasted to the late night January temperatures of central Illinois.
After my summer in Reno I finally got around to updating my portfolio. Here are a few of my favorite images.
