Work of June 2016

Work of June 2016

My internship with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is off to a good start! I am learning a lot about my home town and am visiting places I have never been before. I usually have three or four assignments per day ranging from news, sports, food, portraits and even concerts. My favorite assignment has been an 1870’s style baseball game at the Wisconsin Historical Society which I pitched to my editor after I found an advertisement for it online.

I look forward to what July and August have in store for me! Here are some photos from June and the last week of May, 2016. This is probably one of my lengthiest posts because of the amount of assignments I’ve had, but I’ve only included the more notable images.
