History of Photojournalism
by Robert Heller
Robert is a professor in the School of Journalism and Electronic Media at the University of Tennessee. His photographs have been selected for numerous juried exhibitions and he continues to do freelance work in both graphic design and photography. His exhibit "Living On" has been in numerous museums in TN and at major cities in Poland.
Our December club competition is about Performance. Performing is an action and we want to see photos of people in action, not posed portraits. The digital-only entries can be sports images, dancers, musicians, artists, orchestras, etc. Email your photos to our Competition VP: Jim Parks.
The History of CCOR
Yvonne Dalschen, the President of CCOR (2016) has spent over a year searching the local library and newspapers for clippings, notices, and photos and has compiled a 50+ page document detailing CCOR's past history. It is now available for your enjoyment in CCOR's online library at: CCOR History.pdf. Yvonne also compiled a two-page CCOR timetable which can be read at: Timetable.pdf Yvonne - Awesome job! Thank you!
