ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Bruce Strong is an american multimedia storyteller who likes to work with great people on awesome projects. Life is too short to do anything else. He has shot in nearly 60 countries, with Sudan, Armenia and Haiti added to the mix most recently. Bruce was on staff at The Orange County Register in Southern California for 11 years and has freelanced for a variety of international publications and non-profit organizations. Bruce's work has been published in such prestigious publications as TIME Magazine and National Geographic and has earned numerous awards and two fellowships, The Knight-Wallace Journalism Fellowship at the University of Michigan and the Knight Fellowship at Ohio University.
When he's not in the field, Bruce spends a lot of time helping others learn to tell stories that matter as an associate professor at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, where he teaches an array of video, audio, photography and multimedia courses, as chairman of the Multimedia Photography Design department. Teaching has been a rewarding and enlightening journey, and he is proud of his students, many of whom—while still students—have won top honors from NPPA, POY, World Press and BOP. But Bruce is most proud of his two young sons, Jack and Cole, and loves adventuring through life with his visual journalist/professor wife, Claudia.
