Today I actually shot a Brad Paisley concert. This was the first of thousands of shows I’ve been to where my mother a) knew who the artist was and b) I think might even be excited to see my photos! But because I shot it for the Star Tribune, they own the photos (not me) so I can’t post them here (booooo). But I’ll shoot you the link when the gallery is up later, deal?
So instead I thought I’d show you another cutie from yesterday. Damn, have I mentioned how much fun that was? Dream job.
And since I shot for a newspaper today, I decided my internet share would be to this French paper who ran an issue earlier with no photos to illustrate how we all take journalistic photography for granted. Many of you might not know, but earlier this year the Chicago Sun-Times laid off its entire photography staff and said it could just use images shot by reporters on their mobile phones and such. That was quite a blow, and man can you see it in their day-to-day coverage now.
It seems that with the many cuts newsrooms are making around the world, the visual and production teams are getting hit the hardest, and this paper wanted to recognize it. Bravo.
