A few hours ago I completed my first shift at the Columbia Missourian as a staff photographer. Some of you may recall that I was a sports reporter for the same publication last semester. I have finally moved on to greener pastures and am doing what I love. I was a bit nervous for my first day today. I didn’t have any assignments yet, so I was sent out to feature hunt. Luckily, an editor in the newsroom heard about a local falconer flying his falcons nearby, so I got to spend my afternoon with a cool dude and two Aplomado falcons. Here are my favorite photos that made the Missourian’s online gallery.
