In February of 2009, The 150 year old Rocky Mountain News was closed by Scripps. A lot of really talented people lost their jobs and readers in Colorado lost a great newspaper. When I chose a career as a photojournalist, the Rocky Mountain News was my goal. I wanted to work there. More than wanting to work there I wanted to make pictures like they did. When students in my classes were asked what they wanted to do with photojournalism many said they wanted to work for National Geographic or The New York Times. I couldn’t think of anything else I would rather do than tell stories through the pages of the Rocky.
