Salem Ortega-Morales, Photographer

Hi! It’s Salem again for the second year in a row, writing another staff bio. I won’t be writing any stories, but instead, I’ll be a full-time photographer (with the exception of writing captions). This year I’ll be a junior, and I could not be more excited to return. Unlike last year, I don’t have my hair dyed anymore and I’m no longer a writer. Photography is something I gravitate more and more everyday, and will continue to do so for the rest of my life. Although I’ll miss writing (only a little), I can’t wait to start a new era. This past year, I’ve met so many people on The Journal who have helped me grow and branch out as an aspiring photojournalist. Despite changing my whole position, not much about me is different from last year. I’m still a Steve Lacy, Tyler the Creator, Arctic Monkeys and The Cure fan. I still have my two cats, and we added one more to the family over the summer. Besides all that, I can’t wait to bring you all this year’s photos, and I’m so glad to have the opportunity of being one of the ones to do so.
