Bruce Crippen is a career photographer specializing in photojournalism. He worked at three Ohio newspapers over nearly 40 years and is currently freelancing and teaching in Cincinnati.
He took an interest in photography while a broadcasting student at Bowling Green (Ohio) State University. A required photography course changed the course of his studies and ultimately became a career.
The Fostoria Review-Times and the Fremont News-Messenger provided the experience he needed to land a position at a metropolitan daily, The Cincinnati Post. He stayed there as a staff photographer, picture editor and director of photography until it closed at the end of 2007.
Clients include USA Today, Thomas More College, The Cincinnati Business Courier, 3CDC (Cincinnati City Center Development Corp), Queen City Metro, U. S. Bank and others. He currently teaches photojournalism and studio and location lighting at the University of Cincinnati and Antonelli College. This is the third time he has presented the photography portion of the program at Northern Kentucky University’s high school journalism workshop.
