With plans on becoming an artist Deanne took a photojournalism class that set her off on the path to photographic storytelling.
As a photojournalist it is all about getting the images that help tell the story. Having a mix of confidence, optimism, and perseverance can help overcome the obstacles that come up in any assignment.
Covering the stories of people in life threatening situations present both physical and emotional challenges for the people who tell those stories through pictures and words.
When telling a story it is easy to capture the high moments, but it is much more difficult to pick up the camera when faced with the low moments, but those are just as essential to telling the full arc of the story.
