Better Story Telling Through Better Photos

"I've had to slap his hand every once in a while, you know, to keep him in line," said Bill Reid jokingly. "He's worked fine. He's a perfect gentlemen. He's a professional who knows what he's doing in his craft and it's worked out real nice."

He is Jonathan Wiggins, a photographer at the Boston Globe newspaper, who is learning to tell a story better though pictures during the week-long seminar coordinated by the University of Missouri School of Journalism.

"More than anything else, this is a workshop to try to make them think more clearly and accurately about what they're trying to say in their photography," said Randy Cox, photo editor at the Oregonian newspaper in Portland.

Cox is one of several award-winning editors who critique workshop participants daily. One of his favorite aspects of the week is when local residents finally see participants' finished products.

"The photographers bring the subjects in, or they come on their own, or people who had nothing to do with the workshop come," Cox explained, "and it's just great fun to watch them see how they explored their community."

The Reids and other photo subjects appreciate the exposure. The week's photos will be displayed in Moberly's downtown auditorium this Saturday.
