In summer 2014, some DJD students took to the streets of St. Petersburg to hone their skills in food photography. Taught by Tampa Bay Times photographer Scott Keeler, Sizzling Images was the kick-off class for the graduate Food Writing and Photography Certificate program at University of South Florida St. Petersburg. Besides graduate and undergraduates, the course attracted several community members who took it as a workshop.

As the completely online master’s program in Digital Journalism and Design has grown, so has the department of journalism and media studies. That’s why, beginning in fall 2014, we’ll be offering an online graduate certificate program in Food Writing and Photography! This program is the first-of-its-kind in the nation, and caters to non-degree seekers and degree seekers alike. By completing five courses worth 15 total credits, you can obtain a Food Writing and Photography Graduate Certificate from the University of South Florida St. Petersburg.

We’re reminded of how seemingly disposable journalists are with the recent firing of the Chicago Sun-Times’ entire photography staff. It hurts journalism, and it hurts the community.
Now, the remaining journalists will be given iPhone photography training. If you believe this commercial, more photos are taken with the iPhone than any other camera.
