It has officially been 6 months since graduating from Ohio University. Since then I have photographed The Kentucky Derby, explored Haiti, lived and worked in South Florida at The Miami Herald, traveled to Columbus, Pittsburgh, New York City and Baltimore for a Northeastern road trip. And most recently drove 35 hours from Louisville to Seattle and start work with The Seattle Times for the next 16 weeks. I have finished up only my third week and it has already been the time of life. I love the city, the people, the culture but most of all the paper. Even though it is a 16 week internship, I am dreading the thought of having to leave in January.
The feeling of pushing myself to compete against some of the best has made me not only a better photographer but also helped me realize how much more I still have to learn. I am grateful for this opportunity and I am excited to see what the next few months have in store. Thanks for looking!
