As a freelancer, work can sometimes be hard to come by, especially when your true passion is photojournalism. Sure, I photograph portraits and weddings and the occasional event or corporate gig (visit www.manitouweddings.com to see my work), but telling a story with my camera is what truly makes me feel alive. That’s why I feel so fortunate to have a contract with Minnesota Public Radio News to provide photography and multimedia for mprnews.org. Since my last blog post (where did the time go?), I’ve covered a gamut of stories, with most recently being the Golden Valley Pride Festival and a vigil held in Minneapolis, both on the day of the recent shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla. I’ve pulled a selection of favorites for this post and have included captions for info about the story.
