I have been lucky enough to get a job at the local daily newspaper here in Galesburg. The Galesburg Register-Mail hired me to be a private contracted photographer to pick up a few assignments here and there. This has allowed me to get some great clippings already. I have been on the front page twice and in the sports section twice as well.
Also this is a paying job so I have a few extra bucks to spend while at college.
This is a great step in furthering my photojournalism career! It will be undoubtedly a boost when trying to find an internship for next summer.
