Veteran photographer moves on


After 23 years at the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel, photojournalist Ellie Bogue has left the newspaper industry.

In honor of her news career, the News-Sentinel posted a collection some of Bogue’s work at

One image depicts a firefighter inside a charred home passing a toddler through a broken window into the arms of another rescue worker as the child clutches the firefighter’s helmet.

“The past 23 years have been a roller-coaster ride of news, sports and feature photos, and I would not have missed a moment of it,” Bogue wrote in the post. “I have seen many changes in the industry since I started my career as a photojournalist at the New Castle (Pennsylvania) News in 1986.”

Digital cameras topped the list of transformations.

“Hours in the darkroom have been replaced by laptops,” Bogue wrote. “The transmission of color photos by “spinning” three separate color separations on a drum, which took 30 minutes per photo, is now the click of a key.”

It has been a privilege to be in places where national and international events have unfolded, Bogue wrote.
