Joanna M Kresge
Former Air Force photojournalist interested in entering the job market after five years of service to my country and time dedicated to furthering my education. I am skilled in news/feature photography for print and online journalism, portrait, sports, aerial and crime scene photography. I am comfortable using both PC and Mac and I use PhotoMechanic, MediaGrid and Adobe Bridge with ease. I am a certified expert in AdobePhotoshop. I have an associate degree in telecommunications with a concentration in photography and I am in senior standing in a journalism degree program with an expected graduation date of fall/winter 2014. I have experience with online photo publishing and social media as well.
In addition to my experience and education I have a passion for photojournalism that began when I was eight years old. I believe in getting a photo right in the camera and not in Photoshop. I believe in telling an entire story with one photograph. I believe no news or feature story should go to print without strong supporting photographs. I believe in mentoring the future generation of photographers. I love what I do and I believe it shows in my work. To view my portfolio please visit my Flickr which is located below. Please be advised that my Instagram (also below) is mainly an outlet to share photos of my two awesome kiddos with friends and family.
I am interested in accepting freelance jobs on a case-by-case basis and I am also seeking full time employment in the fields listed below.
