A friend showed my parents a copy of Florida’s Best Newspaper in the early 1970s when he found out I was interested in a photography career. “Bill, Scott should work here," he said to my father. "Just look at these beautiful color pictures.” Twenty years later, that advice came true for me. I’ve covered many interesting and wonderful assignments over a 32-year career at the Tampa Bay Times, including travel stories, yummy food creations, news stories, and politics. I’ve traveled to Tallahassee over 20 years to cover the Florida Legislature and governor. The one aspect of my job as a photojournalist I enjoy most is the spontaneity of the work. You never know what you might be covering in the day. I also enjoy meeting people and listening to their stories.
