Thirty years have passed in a flash since I first stepped through the revolving doors of the darkroom as a Baltimore Sun news photographer. Eight publishers later, I’m still here. As one might expect, many changes have taken place over three decades. From the desktop to the laptop, computers revolutionized the way the world communicates. Newspapers shifted gears from paper to digital. Still cameras incorporated video. Computer chips replaced negative film. Thirty years ago, my equipment consisted of two film cameras, four lenses and a flash. Today’s multitasking photojournalists juggle between photo, video and cell phone cameras not only looking for the quintessential photo, but simultaneously keeping an ear open for the perfect sound byte for video. Today, news is delivered much faster and through many mediums. The most rewarding aspect of being a photojournalist is learning about fascinating people, places and events, and sharing that knowledge in a creative way that gets to the heart of the subject.
