Favorite Photos of 2022

by | Dec 30, 2022

Photos are such a powerful way to convey a story. Most of these photos were taken with an iPhone – we value those professional photogs who share their stuff, but the fact is reporters today have to be photographers too a lot of the time. It’s a challenging and rewarding part of our job. If you like taking photos and can help out, let us know! Email: [email protected]

Can’t believe I just saw this. Great article E. It’s always a pleasure to photograph the Avenger sports. Both the people at the school and at EG News are the best. Keep up the great work you do for this little town.
