Please join me in welcoming David Poller, your Strobist North America / at large correspondent.
I first met Dave 25 years ago at the University of Florida (go Gators) where we were both studying photojournalism. At UF, "studying photojournalism" meant tolerating classes (except for those taught by Fred Parrish, who really knew his shit) while you worked full-time shooting assignments for the local papers and stringing for AP/UPI.
Since then Dave has been a staffer at papers from Florida to Alaska, and a pic-ed at the San Diego Union-Tribune. He now is a photo editor at Zuma Press.
Check out his photography on his website or follow him via Twitter -- which is also the best place to tip him to cool story ideas for Strobist.
