Photojournalist, Photojournalism by DJ

Raleigh , North Carolina , United States


I am a full-time photojournalist based out of Eastern North Carolina.
I have worked on daily newspapers in ENC.
I have been published in many newspapers,
media wires, AP wire and the Guardian [UK]

I am inspired by retro style editorial work
I'll take on a project if it allows me to work in my distictive style.
I love working with black and white film in vintage cameras.
I am attracted to the timelessness, simpliticity,and depth of shooting monochrome.

That said, I was a staff photographer when the NC 2000 digital camera arrived on the newspaper scene. The technology changes so fast that I made a decision to I shoot digital when I need to and film, when I can, on longer - term doc projects. Most of my doc projects are self funded and have long lead times.

I'm based in Raleigh, N.C.
My beat is from the Capitol to the coast.


If you are a writer, editor or other type of creative soul and would like to collaborate on a project, shoot me an email with your ideas.

Same for N.G.O's- send me your ideas, timeframe and budget.

I mostly shoot for editorial stock, but will take on the occasional project.

Minimum daily rate: $500 daily, plus mileage and expenses.

Thanks for stopping by.
