I'm your new Photojournalism CV!

Tue Jul 29, 2014, 10:01 AM by tanikel:icontanikel:

Time to party! :party:

If this is your first time seeing me, hi!  I'm tanikel.  I've been a combat documentation/production specialist (better known as combat camera) for the US Army since 2009.  COMCAM and PJs are different career-fields, though similar; we operate on the tactical side of the work.  I'm also working on making a name for myself in the equine competition field.  You can say that I eat, breathe and live this career.   It's why I was eager to apply when I saw that the CV slot for it opened up (though I honestly didn't think I'd get approved, haha). 

Photojournalism is a fascinating mix of hard storytelling, diversity, joy, heartbreak, politics, and trials.  It's about capturing the moment, no matter the challenge. 

I know 1pen left some pretty big shoes for me to fill, it'll be a fun challenge to keep up.  Over the next week, I'll be putting up my DD suggestion guidelines, information, and some tips and tricks.  In the meantime, feel free to start sending me any DD suggestions or general suggestions (any features, tutorials, interviews, information, etc) you may have for the Photojournalism gallery.  I can't wait to get to know everyone!

Yep, you read it right. Female combat photographer/videographer. My job is my life, I'm happiest out in the nastiness with my 'family'. By the end of 2014, I'll be a photography instructor for the future combat cameramen of all branches of the U.S. Military. I specialize in comdoc/photojournalism and am beginning to build my portfolio for equestrian events.

Interested in a shoot? I'm currently located in central Maryland and spend a lot of time in southern Maryland.

My real family consists of my husband, two of the most awesome boys in the world, a cat, a cabbitt, and two rescue horses that I take care of on weekends (they're available for adoption, just sayin'). I adore them even though they try to steal my camera gear every chance they get. My life depends on caffeine, especially NOS and Starbucks.

DD Guidelines


I'm the Photojournalism CV!

Suggestion Guidelines

:bulletblack: I only take Photojournalism suggestions, I cannot feature anything else (like scraps, portraits, or traditional art).

:bulletblack: Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?

:bulletblack: Send your suggestions to only ONE Community Volunteer!

:bulletblack: Just hit the "Note" button on my profile page and add the subject: DD Suggestion include the thumb code along with the reason why you think the deviant deserves a Daily Deviation. Please keep 1 suggestion per note.

:bulletblack: There must be information in the Artist's description describing the photo. It doesn't have to be a full "who, what, when, where, why" caption (though that's definitely preferred!).

:bulletblack: Don't hesitate to self-promote!

I may not reply to all suggestions but I do read, consider and appreciate every suggestion :heart:.
