Ivy Ceballo - Photographer


Witnessing moments is what I love most about being a photojournalist. It's what drew me to the art and led me to purchase my first camera. I learned to make pictures while documenting participants attending a military-style summer leadership camp in New England. Since then, I've worked on the digital team for a newsroom in Utah and more recently interned on its photo staff. I am close to completing my second bachelor's degree in photojournalism at Western Kentucky University. I see moments (*nudge nudge, wink wink* my initials are I.C.) that help readers connect with the people in front of my lens. I am excited to serve my community through my love of visual storytelling while being back home in the Tampa Bay area.
