I discovered photojournalism in tenth grade after job shadowing the photographers at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The experience I had opened my eyes to a realm of photography I did not know existed and it encouraged me to pursue a career in sharing other peoples stories and be an eye for the rest of the world. Ever since then it has been a goal of mine to intern with the MJS.
After freshman year of college I did not think I was prepared for the MJS, and instead took an internship in Hutchinson, Kansas. Last summer I interned with the Naples Daily News in Naples, Florida, where I learned from some of the best photographers in the industry and had an amazing photo editor who pushed me to the fullest.
After three years of schooling, two internships and working for Ohio Athletics I think I’m ready. On Monday I begin my internship with the MJS and I could not be more excited to work with a team of very talented and experienced photographers and editors. I hope I can learn from the staff about how to improve my photography and provide the MJS and Milwaukee with great photos.
Here is a sorta lengthy list of photos from my three week “home-cation” since I’ve been back from school.
