It is not easy being a photo-journalist when you are emotionally involved...
I am working on a project with my gal pal Jessica Klein and plan on sharing my by-line with her. I mentioned in Facebook that I was covering a 4-alarm fire that still has my neighbors and I in shock because we frequented the businesses that were destroyed in Rego Park.
Jess and I are doing a YouTube regarding the aftermath of the blaze and the music, photo-montage and video clips are edited, arranged but waiting for the final audio overlays for publication. This story is still unfolding and the Fire Marshalls are actively investigating the incident. I am still conducting eye witness interviews to get my facts straight. It is not easy being a photo-journalist... especially when you are emotionally involved. Investigative reporting requires a lot more effort than me being facetious about my kids. This is going to be a major Localism series because each business has a story. Jess and I aim to tell a couple of them...
I got to shadow a number of professionals who were on the scene and decided I'd tease you guys with a little eye candy of Tai Hernandez and Kristen Shaughnessy. They happen to be two of my fave people to watch when I do get around to catching up on the news while peeking at Internet TV. I am very pleased to be linking back to their coverage because I got to observe them create their reports. It takes hours of dedication to give you guys a two minute news snippet. Both news teams were very methodical, courteous and patient. I bet you'd be surprised if you really knew how much video was shot to make those little editorial news clips.
The ladies will bring you guys up to speed until Jessica and I finish our follow-up to this event. I go to the NY Sports Club just up the block so covering this is personal because the fire didn't just destroy some great Mom and Pop businesses, it emotionally and financially decimated a group of people I happen to care about.
