Good timing, a strong portfolio and an ongoing personal interest in photographing Native American Culture landed me a position with the Southern Ute Indian Tribe, as a full time photographer for their newspaper and archive in Ignacio, Colorado.
The Southern Ute Drum is published as Ignacio’s only newspaper, covering Tribal affairs and local events. The archive is a product of journalism and provides a historical record belonging to Ute culture and the Southern Ute Tribe.
The “Drum” is published every two weeks, followed immediately by an online posting. I have added a link on the right sidebar, as well as links to a few pages of my work from our last two issues below.
I look forward to the opportunities, challenges and relationships that will come with this position as I explore Ute culture “through the lens”. Perhaps most valuable will be the experiences that I will have as a photojournalist within just a few miles of my own doorstep!
