About Garrett Ewald
While documenting academic experiences has dominated my work in recent years it builds on my experience making journalistic images for decades.
For many years I covered events, sports, and people for newspapers, the Associated Press, and education clients in a Bloomington, Indiana, home to my alma mater Indiana University. It was a great place to learn about journalism and photography. I moved to New York City in 2001 and my clientele expanded to include corporate, non-profit, and family clients.
Making photos is a great way to contribute to building community, and it is a great way to keep learning everyday.
From New York City it is easy to cover assignments in the Hudson Valley, the Berkshires, and from D.C. to Boston and into central PA/western NY. Working in Hawaii, Asia, Central America, Europe, and Africa has also been a snap thanks to nearby major airports.
A journalist at heart
I had the good fortune to get started in photojournalism in what may have been the last boom of of the industry. My career straddles the film and digital eras, analog to digital transmission, and the explosion of online media. I'm also a graduate of the Indiana University Journalism School when it was home to one of only two paid circulation campus papers in the country and was on the base for the Associated Press NewsWire in town. The Journalism program had a long run of distinguished professors and notable alumni that continues to this day. I bring this experience, and many years in television production and publication design, to each photo opportunity.
