The year 1993 has been a challenging one for photographers at the Deseret News. Ask any "shooter" on the staff what he or she will remember most and chances are their reply would have something to do with brain damage incurred while trying to learn three different computer systems, now heavily used in getting pictures into the newspaper.

Fortunately, we weren't always in meetings or herding pixels on the computers. Perhaps more than ever, we've appreciated getting out and shooting photographs.One of our photographers, Garry Bryant, suffered a stroke this year, and after being laid up for a few weeks he commented that shooting "pet of the week" photos never looked so good.

The beauty of working as a photojournalist is the variety of work. One moment you're shooting models and the next you're up to your ankles in water while trying to cover a fire. It's a great job that lets you capture the year's most important - and some not so important - events on film, as well as meeting people and sharing a slice of their lives with Deseret News readers.
