Just saw a great article by Alex Garcia, of the Chicago Tribune, entitled:

Tuesday Tips: 10 Key Traits of Winning Photojournalists 

Had to share with my readers as so many points are spot on.  I realize it is from 2010, but some things are ageless.

I am going to list his top ten but you must read the full article for his explanations.

  1. A lone wolf orientation
  2. Single, or have a flexible family life
  3. An Immovable Faith in the Power of an Image
  4. Fearless
  5. Fast and Decisive
  6. Ability to Self-Edit
  7. Competitive, Very
  8. Clever
  9. Relentless
  10. Anointed

As an award winner in several photo contests I can attest most, if not all attributes, are required for an award winning entry.

November 14, 2013~

It’s been a while since I updated the blog so a quick note or two.

I have another Badger football game this weekend against Indiana. After attending last weekends Badger football game have to share how impressed I was with the singer of the National Anthem, Skylar Stecker, left me impressed to say the least. After doing some research found out her parent’s recently moved to Southern California from Wisconsin in order to pursue her career. Interesting to say career when referring to an 11-year-old but if her parents are good with it so be it. An article by Doug Moe of the Wisconsin State Journal on the Stecker story. Her voice and stage presence belie her age.  Will be fun to see where her career takes her.
