Welcome.

This blog is created for students, teachers and anyone interested in the current state and future of photojournalism.

I’ll use it as an adjunct to my own classroom, adding material and thoughts I can’t deliver to my students during lecture. I hope to add ideas to the soupy worldwide discussion of the art, craft and profession of photojournalism (or documentary or editorial photography, whatever label you choose).

The idea for it came over a café cortado and a sandwiche cubano at a northwest Denver cafe with Matt Slaby, a former student and one of the founders of the rising-star collective Luceo Images.

In discussion of Web marketing for photojournalists I confessed to Matt that I found most blogs either meaningless or too snarky to read. For sake of getting the would-be train-wreck watchers they often wield one-sided and shallow criticism.

On the spot I realized perhaps I had a niche.

Or an itch.

Yes, there will be opinion here, and observations from both the trenches of working photojournalism and the ivory tower of academia. But I’ll keep it civilized, well-thought-out and hopefully valuable. If the content is worthwhile to you, please add me to your RSS feeds.
