Longtime photographer’s
advice: image before story

By Jasmine Wu
Bulletin Staff

Glenn Callahan, a longtime staff photographer at The Stowe (Vt.) Reporter, retired May 4, the day that also happened to mark his 25th year there.

During his time at the Reporter, a weekly newspaper with a circulation of about 4,600, Callahan would focus not on the subjects but rather the aesthetics of the photographs, an approach that he thought helped the publication to stand out against its competitors.

“My photos lean more towards the artistic side, not necessarily journalistic,” Callahan said.

His motto is “image first and story later,” a saying that might seem unusual for a staff photographer, but one that has been refined through his quarter-decade of experience.

Photography has always been in Callahan’s blood. His father, Alfred Callahan, had been a photographer with the U.S. Army, stationed at Fort Churchill in Manitoba, Canada, during the Korean War.MORE >
