About Josalee Thrift

I worked for five years as a photojournalist full-time for the Republican-American, a daily newspaper in Waterbury, Conn. I graduated with a degree in journalism from Boston University, where I also had the opportunity to shoot for a dozen New England newspapers when I was in Washington, DC for a semester through BU's Washington Journalism Program. In Boston and DC I was lucky enough to cover such events as the Red Sox World Series win in 2004, and the congressional steroids hearings in 2005.

Over the years I've received recognition and awards for daily news and sports photos and a long-term story on Marie Tyrrell, an inspirational woman who I followed for three years until her death of lung cancer in 2009.

Please visit my Prints galleries, where prints and/or downloads of my own copyrighted images are available for purchase. I've shot just about EVERYTHING.. life in newspapers teaches you to excel at adapting to situations, improvising when something doesn't go as planned, and meeting nightly deadlines, so if you have something or someone that you want to be photographed well and edited fast, contact me.
