One month in

I'm half way through my internship at the Star-Ledger and it's been a lot of fun. I've had the chance to cover everything from court hearings to baseball to protests. And it's not just what I'm covering, but the lifestyle of a photojournalist is something to experience. It's a lot of time on the road, trying to constantly be creative and working random hours.

Here are some photos that I like from the past month.

Now interning at the Star-Ledger

Last month I graduate from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and started an internship as a photojournalist at the Star-Ledger in New Jersey. The Star-Ledger is a fantastic newspaper and has an excellent photo staff. They're coming off a Pulitzer Prize win, and in the short two weeks I've been on the job, I've heard nothing but good things from New Jersey residents.

While there, I am just like a staff photographer. I get all the gear, any range of assignments and most importantly a paycheck. I've been lucky in that I've been able to cover a few MLB games recently. I got out to the Mets/Braves and then a couple Yankees games against the Boston Red Sox and Cleveland Indians. These games are a workout, as I'm transmitting early and often. Here are some photos from those three games:
