That's me, Mark E. Johnson, Senior Lecturer of Photojournalism at the University of Georgia's Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication.
My world is upside down. And I love it.
I teach all of the courses that currently make up the Visual Journalism emphasis within the Department of Journalism. Comprised of JOUR3610 - Introduction to Photojournalism, JOUR3710 - Advanced Photojournalism (offered each fall) and JOUR5370 - Documentary Photography (offered each spring), students are introduced to the technical concepts of visual journalism as well as the storytelling and community building aspects of the craft. A special topics class (JOUR5990) varies in what it covers and when it is offered. Most recently, it has been a Multiplatform Journalism course.
These are NOT photography courses - this is not an opportunity to express your inner self. We tell other people's stories. Stories that are socially relevant, stories that help communities develop. Stories that advance our understanding of the world we live in. I believe we have a Constitutional obligation to commit acts of journalism.
Links to the courses and class blogs are along the top. My primary blog is useful to all working journalists and educators who are interested in the changes to our industry. While certainly not complete, it is fairly comprehensive.
