Relaunching AssignmentChicago.com

Welcome back to AssignmentChicago.com. For those who followed my blog by this name at the Chicago Tribune, I left the paper a few weeks ago to pursue a freelance career based here in Chicago. It’s been on my heart for awhile to do so, as I saw more and more opportunities for visual storytelling to which I wanted to say “Yes!”  Yet before I left there were many posts that I still wanted to write, that I just didn’t have time to squeeze in before going. So I’m returning to this domain address, which I purchased years ago before my blog moved to the Tribune site. It’s where Assignment Chicago first got its start.

Now that this blog is independent, there will be things I can say without it being perceived as the opinions of my former employer. I look forward to writing more posts about photojournalism, visual storytelling and the editorial world with more candor but still the same politeness (unless your staff lets go of its photojournalists). As before, I’ll be posting pictures but with probably less frequency depending on the preferences of my clients. My longer posts will still aim to be educational, hopefully inspirational, and others well, thanks for the benefit of the doubt.

Stay tuned to this space…
