Audiences today expect to see everything. While anyone with a smart phone considers themselves a photographer, quality photojournalism still distinguishes itself when an organization is telling their own story. Joe Wrinn knows the difference. He worked as a professional photojournalist for 15 years for the New York Times and United Press International. He knows how to tell an organization's story accurately, compellingly, and visually. He covered major news events and illustrated topical and thematic feature stories including:
* Mao-era street life in China, including the controversial Poster
Wall, shortly after the country was opened up to Western visitors.
* Two US presidential campaigns.
* Labor Party Convention in Blackpool, England.
* Middle East Business Development Conference in London.
* Daily beat coverage of the Boston Red Sox and Boston Celtics.
* The 10th anniversary of school desegregation in Boston.
* Numerous protests and one assassination attempt.
* Kermit the Frog discussing life in the big pond.
