Photo and Pen, a Unique Duo

Let us get right into it!

Introductions are in order, my name is Joshua Spaman. At the time of writing this, I am a sophomore at Wayne State University studying journalism and photography with a plan of becoming a photojournalist in the future. 

With the basics out of the way, I will dive into what journalism is to me. Growing up in a household that did not watch the news for much more than the morning weather or an update on whether school was cancelled due to the snow, my family would rarely invest much time into it. 

I would often find myself watching the news, looking up to the reporters who followed through with their stories. I held great respect for the ones who would go after the people who held the critical information, especially in cases where it could have proved dangerous.

The second aspect that always drew my attention was the imagery used. Video and photography were the two elements that I always would find myself enamored with, watching the journalists follow through with the story to grab that one photograph. 

After gaining respect for these individuals, I decided that I wanted to follow in their footsteps one day.
