Chris Pietsch's Message: I love my job. Most of the time.

Being a photographer for a daily newspaper is a ticket to meet and photograph a host of interesting people and events.

One week I might find myself in Phoenix, Ariz. for the Fiesta Bowl and the next week meeting a retiring police dog in Springfield. While traveling to a bowl game is exciting and fun, some of my most rewarding experiences this year were documenting the simpler moments of life in the Willamette Valley.

A young couple let me in the birthing room as they showed off their baby girl to family and friends moments after her birth. I stood on Skinner Butte with a handful of others, including three Eugene Police officers, watching mother nature put on a spectacular lightning display at 5 a.m. in the morning. And a same sex couple trusted me enough to let me spend the night on their couch, so I could make images of their early morning routine before the sun rose for the day.

I met many homeless people living on the streets this year. Many of these people were working to improve the options available, both from themselves and others. Those encounters have given me a much greater understanding of, and sympathy for the, un-housed in our community. I appreciate their trust in letting me tell their story and make a photograph during their struggles.

At the end of each year I try to take time to look back at my work, take stock of what I have accomplished and set a few goals for the coming year. As a result, I have assembled a group of my favorites from the last 12 months which I share with you here now.

Thanks for having a look. Perhaps our paths will cross sometime in 2014.


Pietsch, pronounced Peach has been at the The Register-Guard in Eugene, Ore since 1988. Before that he worked in Idaho at the Lewiston Morning Tribune and the Moscow/Pullman Daily News.
