Just back from shooting a wedding with other Mission Loc@lers Betty, Amanda and Stefania (a new model of sustaining journalists, perhaps? Hey, it’s worked for photojournalists for a while now.) I set out with a new toy, a Nikon D700, that Betty used for the wedding. Learning new equipment on the fly and controls that were backwards from Canon’s made this week an extra challenge.
Armand is a photojournalism and multimedia student at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, and is originally from Baton Rouge, La. His work history includes being a paper pusher in Los Angeles and a youth program coordinator in Ramallah, and is currently a student editor at Mission Local, which means he gets to read a lot of news and tell people what to do.
He also waits for the day when bacon and buffalo sauce combine on one plate.More by Armand Emamdjomeh
