Once a journalist always a journalist
My early career was 80% editorial, but the business has fallen on hard times and it has dropped almost to 0% in recent years. If papers haven't closed they have been absorbed by Gannett or laid off all their photographers. I've been published in many newspapers, either on assignment or via images distributed by the Associated Press, often on tight deadlines.
Since moving to New York City I've ventured into the world of content marketing, completing assignments for the US Army and Nintendo. More recently I have been developing relationships to document the experiences of kids in schools to help parents discover the amazing things kids experience out of their view.
Editorial photography usually means doing more than you can with a smartphone, working in challenging conditions, low light, and fast-moving situations that can't be restaged. Under deadline a single image might be sufficient, but when possible producing a variety of images to tell a story is my preferred approach to assignments.
