Alot of a News Photographer's life is spent working on
I shot a story about a group of homeless men who play on a soccer team in Charlotte 2 weeks ago. It aired tonight at 10, I spent time editing this story on 6 consecutive days between shooting and editing other projects that had earlier, even same day air dates.
I spent the pre-dawn hours of Monday and Tuesday shooting a consumer story about dry shampoo that lets a person skip a day of hair washing the old fashioned, wet way.
And on Monday, after my predawn shoot, I shot a cool story at an elementary school with the Twice Grammy nominated musical duo, "Trout Fishing in America". I had never heard of them, but I loved what I heard and I must say, inspired on several levels.
So let's recap, Monday and Tuesday - up at 4:45 am, shooting for two stories, editing for two others.
Wednesday - Editing the Monday, Tuesday "Dry Shampoo" story along with "Homeless Soccer".
Thursday - "Finish Homeless Soccer", start and finish "Trout Fishing in America" Feature.
