A Photographic Farewell

Janesville Gazette photojournalist intern Matthew Wisniewski, an undergraduate at UW-Madison, writes his final entry in his online weblog about finishing his photography internship at the paper. Here is a passage from his final weblog post:

And of course, to my fellow photographers Dan Lassiter, and Al Hoch. You two taught me how to be a professional on and off the job, and I’ll never forget that. And finally, to my mentor Bill Olmsted, I can’t even begin to explain how far my work has come in six months, and that’s all thanks to you. Bill, you had the idiocy to treat a wet-behind-the-ears photographer like me like a real staffer, and that changed everything for me. I really can’t thank the three of you enough.
