Bria Granville, a 20-year-old Western Kentucky University junior, joined The Anderson News staff May 22 as the newspaper’s 2013 Kentucky Press Association photography intern.
Granville, who lives in Georgetown, will be working with editorial staff for the next 10 weeks covering the people, places and events of Anderson County.
Majoring in photojournalism with a minor in sociology, Granville said she would like to work with a non-profit organization as a photojournalist after college.
“I hope to gain knowledge and understanding and experience on a professional newspaper staff in order to learn how the news world works,” Granville said of her goals for the summer internship.
Though this is Granville’s first newspaper internship, she has experience photographing and producing multimedia stories such as a family who adopted five children of different races and a story of a child with a severe disability.
She said she finds inspiration in photojournalists like New York Times Todd Heisler, the journalist responsible for the paper’s “One in 8 Million” series.
“I think that it really inspires me to really work on multimedia. It’s put together really well and beautifully; it’s very detailed,” Granville said. “The way he does the audio: you don’t need anything but the person’s voice. The person’s voice carries you through the story.”
When she’s not taking photos, Granville said she enjoys spending time with her family and volunteering with Public Achievement, a program where students visit an elementary school for a year and teach students about social responsibility.
