Picture Editing


From August 2019 through December 2019 I was a picture editing intern at the Columbia Missourian, a daily city-paper in central Missouri. I coached and coordinated staff and volunteer visual journalists on daily assignments, video and longterm projects for online and print. I also culled  through the Associated Press wire for national coverage.

With the help of Brian Kratzer, Director of Photography, I culled through every image made during 2019 by Columbia Missourian staff photographers to create a 50-picture edit for the Year in Pictures. Designer Cassie Allen and I used 17 pictures for the print edition.  View the online presentation here.

Fellow picture editor Bailey Valadez and I sent Missourian photographers Emmalee Reed and Joel Chan to venture across Columbia, Missouri and capture residents who live and breathe fashion. Designer Cassie Allen and I collaborated for this and the online presentation here.

After photographer Yanchen Liu and I culled through her marathon pictures from Fall 2019, I pitched a print-presentation. Designer Corey Hadfield and I collaborated for this and the online presentation is available here.

Photographer Claire Hassler documented students at a local community college to visualize a new program for high school dual credit. The story, produced alongside KBIA and KOMU, was designed by Corey Hadfield. View the online presentation here.

After a weekend full of university Homecoming preparation, rodeo and corn mazes, I pitched and worked with designer Corey Hadfield to make a collective print-only presentation of one Fall weekend highlighting original photography from Joel Chan, Emmalee Reed and Daniel Shular.

After the sweat had dried, the tennis balls were gathered, the trophies were kissed and the triumph was paraded, it was time to look back at both weeks of U.S. Open tennis. Here is the online presentation of these Associated Press pictures.
