Photojournalism and What it Means Today

 

What does it mean to call yourself a photojournalist in 2017? How does photography that can already be construed as a half truth exist in the age of “fake news”. Can a medium like photojournalism or journalism as a whole persist in the post-fact age? My intention isn’t to answer these questions but to further the discussion. I’ll be sharing my experience as a working photojournalist in the current national climate. I can provide a unique perspective because of a diverse list of clients that I work for and the events I’ve covered over the past few years.

Logan Cyrus is an independent photojournalist working in the southeastern United States and lives in Charlotte, NC with his wife, Jamie, and son, Ben. Since moving to North Carolina in 2004, he is proud to now call the state home.


When Logan graduated high school, he served 6 years as a Navy Corpsman where he had two combat tours in the Iraq War. When he left the Navy, he moved to Charlotte with his wife and attended The Art Institute of Charlotte. After graduating with a BA in Photography, he worked as the staff photographer of Charlotte Magazine. After two years, he left his post at the magazine to pursue freelance photography full-time.


He is a regular contributor to The New York Times and The Washington Post, and he works for a diverse list of clients nationally and internationally. Logan is also a stringer for Agence France-Presse and a regular contributor to Charlotte Magazine. He feels incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to help people form opinions or challenge their own perspectives through his pictures.
