Through a combination of classes and on-the-job experience, I’ve learned the basics of photo, video and audio reporting and editing. These skills have proved valuable not only in making me a more versatile reporter, but also in allowing me different outlets to bring my stories to life in new ways.

In addition to taking the occasional photo, I shoot video footage to accompany stories on the Globe’s website.
I also shot video for many of the stories I produced for the Telegraph Herald. Responsibilities generally included shooting A roll and B roll published with my stories on the website.
