Photographers

If you haven't read the story or seen the video, Texas Ranger pitcher Kenny Rogers went off on two video photographers last night. His actions were shameful and he rightfully faces possible prosecution for assault.

Photographers are often unsung in what they do and I wanted to take time to mete out some praise.

In TV newsrooms, now, they seem to be the sole beacons of real journalistic restraint. They dutifully cover all the crime and crap they've been assigned, but they know better than most what a story really is. They are aching for assignments that tell real stories with real people that will make an impact on the viewer.

At newspapers, photographer toil, often alone, to bring real life to the stories in the papers. They help, with one singular moment, capture the essenence and the pathos of the story. It is a shame, even in the internet world (and because of the awful Oregon Live) that we don't get to see more of the work of photographers - from the O to the Trib to all the local papers in our region.

Today I thought of that looking at Olivia Bucks' picture in the Oregonian of the neighbor looking at what happened to her home when fire visited next door - a lovely picture of an awful moment.

To the men and women on the street who always have our backs - salute.

I ws surfing the Net the other night and came across some still color pictures of the Rose Parade, circa mid-1970's. There was a KOIN film crew in the middle of the image and I swear it was Harold E. behind the KOIN camera... with some whiskers!

Harold, Art, Dale and all the old boys from KOIN, I salute you. If the ND's really knew how much the BEST shooters do... they'd be amazed.

It's still to bad that todays tv news doesn't provide for the time or effort needed to provide NPPA type packages.

Very soon, the news directors will accept home video quality and style as the norm and high quality.
