Why you should hire me
Taking an extra climb to get a good shot of the Navy Base.
While I may have my own website, I'm not your typical TV reporter. I like to concentrate on the story rather than myself. That means if I can get a closeup of the bullet hole instead of a shot of me pointing at it, I'll do that. I also take my work very seriously, concentrating equally on the visuals as well as the writing. No shaky shots, no sloppy sentences, and no rush to get home as quickly as everyone else. Each day I write a separate web article to complement the visual story, never simply rewriting a TV script to shovel online.
I take pride in my versatility, for while I believe I'm a creative photographer, I am not dependent on my camera. I can write a well-crafted online story that would fit into any newspaper if the need arises. When cameras were not allowed inside the federal courthouse during the case against Girls Gone Wild Founder Joe Francis, our station did not lose any edge to the local newspaper.
It may not sound like a big number to the TV veterans. But after about 350 packages and as many VOSOTS, I can say I have grown sharper with every one. My styles of photography and storytelling are often compelling, but there's always plenty of room to keep improving.
I hear many people say one-man-bands cannot cut it against a competitive team.
Give me a chance to disprove that idea, and I can promise I'll outwork everyone around me.
