CBS Morning News

I have been shooting news since 1995. I started my career in local news markets in Orlando and Atlanta. In 2002 I joined CBS Network as a staff photojournalist based in the Chicago Bureau. News Travels have taken me to all 50 States, Africa, London, Bosnia, Haiti and more. I have covered eight major hurricanes and four elections.  In 2007/2008 I was appointed one of Obama’s Network Pool photographers for the campaign. With the changing face of News Media my duties range from breaking news, special features for CBS Sunday Morning and CBS This Morning to music documentaries and concert coverage for More importantly I like Tacos.

“In the ‘run and gun’ realm of news gathering there are no second chances. I have to have tough equipment that can take below zero temperatures and are reliable at any hour of the day. Stella’s compact size and powerful punch is remarkable, but the time saving aspect is astounding.”
