Home again, and for longer



Four days at the Eddie Adams workshop in Jeffersonville, NY took me as far as I've ever gone with no sleep, little food and constant shooting. It was kind of the exact opposite of The Herald, though underneath the chaos and intensity, the fundamentals are the same. After four grueling days, I found myself back in Indiana, feature hunting in Birdseye. It's like letting out a deep breath.

Oh, and they've asked me to stay on for another six months. By next June, I will have been here for thirteen months-- the perpetual Herald intern. Cheezy as it is, I'm honored. This newsroom is a joy to work in.

That's great news Amanda, I'm sure you'll run with it. I've heard Jasper is truly a special place, not to mention the market is simply awful now, it's a great time to intern at a wonderful spot. The more time you have, the more you can dig.

I hope EAW was a blast.

Congrats on the internship and EAW! way to continue kickin ass! I thought MPW would have been a good primer for the lack of sleep part.

AWESOME! Congrats! Were you at the Swan Inn at EAW? That place is special. But seriously, congrats on staying on at Jasper and keep kicking ass. You're doing some great work.

Hi,

I stumbled upon your photoblog through many degrees of separation, i.e. links.

Just want to say that I think you're a great photographer because you have a gift of bringing the extraordinary out of the ordinary. I can sense that you manage to build a level of trust with nearly all your subjects.

Looking forward to more pictures from you.
