Hired gun

Long time no post... As some of you might already know, I have a non-photo but journalism-related full-time job. It pays the bills, and I do like it, but I really miss photojournalism. Still nobody around here is hiring a staff photographer. During my job search this past summer, I was fortunate to meet the few established photojournalists and editors here in Turkey. Small, very small market... Anyways, I got a phone call this week, which totally made my day. I was asked by Reuters to cover a rally. I got free mentoring on the side. :) I hope to cover more and learn more as a stringer and promise to improve. The first four pictures are the ones Reuters purchased (© Reuters), and I wanted to post two outtakes I liked.
