If a picture is worth a thousand words, the following has a collective value of 54 thousand. But the real value of capturing fleeting moments is priceless. The most interesting subject for me to photograph is people. What are they doing? What are they feeling? What are they saying? The right captured moment, no matter how loud or quiet, reveals the person.

My work as a staff photojournalist for The Spokesman-Review is a kaleidoscope of fleeting moments filled with emotion, beauty and sometimes despair. Each day, I try and capture with my camera a visual reflection of what has happened in our community.

Through our lens: Tyler Tjomsland

My goal as a photojournalist is to document news events in ways that enrich perspectives and spark reaction within our community: to make readers care about others and the world around them. I feel extremely fortunate to work for a newspaper that still supports great documentary photography and to serve a community that passionately connects with our work.

Through our lens: Kathy Plonka

Of my 19 years as a photojournalist working for The Spokesman-Review, 18 of those years were spent primarily in North Idaho. I have had the great privilege of being able to document the lives of amazing people. The strength and quiet reserve of Corie Laude, a senior fisheries technician for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, during a trip on the Kootenai River near Bonners Ferry was inspiring. The determination revealed by Paul Dunham to fight the neuro-muscular disorder that reduced his body to 83 lbs. was nothing less than amazing. I was awestruck to meet legendary human rights activist, James Meredith. Documenting the methamphetamine epidemic was both dangerous and heartbreaking. I hope I never photograph a man like Joseph Duncan again. Above all it’s the love of telling your stories through photojournalism truly that drives me. Thanks for letting me in.
