A New Frontier

This is a new venture in photography for your host. As a Staff Photographer for The Sun Newspaper in San Bernardino, California, I intend to use this space to discuss, photojournalism. The aspects of photojournalism such as technical talk, ethics, approach, point of view and aesthetics will be covered. Here serious and some times not so serious aspects of photojournalism will be addressed on a regular basis. As I find something to discuss related to press photography during my encounters, I would like to share them with you.

A brief introduction: Currently I am a full-time, staff photographer for a metro newspaper of about 80,000 copies circulated daily. With the advent of technology, the online version of The Sun is under constant improvements. The internet is a wonderfull tool to communicate with readers. So visit www.sbsun.com on a regular basis to view stories and photographs from our Inland Empire communities. One more thing about moi, I have been a photographic story teller for about 17 years and currently am finishing a masters degree in photography.

Please post comments of a professional and or curious nature if you are so inclined and we will see where this goes.

March 18, 2006 - Returning Troops - Over the weekend, I covered two events in the High Desert region of Barstow and Ft. Irwin. The return of the 11th ACR to Ft. Irwin was an opportunity to record the events of our soldiers returning from a year tour in Iraq.

The slide show: Blackhorse

I look forward to your comments. Post for all to view or contact me at eric.reed@sbsun.com and I will try to get back to you in a decent amount of time.

Thank You for your time.

I was at this event as my husband was one of the blackhorse troopers who returned from Iraq. I was amazed by your pictures and representation of the troops that unfortunately no television stations wanted to cover because it would show the good that comes from war. Kudos to you and keep it up. Allons!

Proudly, my husband and I attended this event to welcome home our son-in-law and his fellow troopers. Eric's photographs are fabulous! Thanks to him for the wonderful coverage - I'm forwarding the link to everyone in my email address book.

Many of these look familiar even though I wasn't there on these occassions, but I wish had been as the dynamic duo of Rick and Eric covered such stories many times. Ah, if only we could have made the last step to Iraq!!
Good work Earache! And a great blog site as well. Can I send over some of mine occassional for a constructive critique?
