I'm a photojournalist and writer - you'll usually see my work at TheMudflats.net, GregPalast.com and NationofChange.org

I'm sure if you're looking at this page you've been told dozens of times by other people that real journalism is expensive. Photojournalism is doubly so. With newspapers closing up their photo departments and grabbing random shots off of the internet to fill their pages photojournalists have never had a tougher time covering the stories that need to get covered. For years in my spare time I've been covering political movements around the country - from voting rights activists in New Mexico to Occupy Wall Street in Chicago and NY to Black Lives Matter in Ferguson and Brooklyn. On my own dime I traveled to Kiev during Euromaidan and similarly went to Ferguson and just recently New Hampshire during the primaries. 

That's why I'm looking to you - the consumers of this media to support my work. I have many sites with a wide readership that would love to take my work but sadly don't have the cash to cover hotel rooms and gas (even as cheap as it is now). As with most things in the world of progressive media we're all working on the cheap - and as I said before photojournalism is very expensive. 

Check out my site zdroberts.com to see what I do. And if you're a fan - please support my work - so that I can do this every day. I'll take my 15 year old chevy that I bought by selling nearly everything I own (except my cameras) to the road to cover protest movements, the unseen side of the political process and investigate the bastards trying to take your rights from you.

Truly independent visual journalism. 

I'm a photojournalist - I do still and video journalism across the country. I cover the protest movements in the USA, voter suppression with Greg Palast, and often whatever comes my way. 

Like so many other journalists out there, I need support. I'm starting my own visual news site called Visu.News - that's the name of it, no .com, net or .org. Just .NEWS
