RANDALL GREENWELL has over twenty years of experience in visual journalism including photography, picture editing, video editing, page design, multimedia production and management. For the last six years he has been the director of photography at The Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, Virginia. During that time The Pilot team has received numerous accolades from the National Press Photographers Association and Pictures of the Year International, including Picture Editing Team of the Year (NPPA 2012), Best Use of Photography (POYi 2011) and first place for three years running in the NPPA's Best Use of Photography Quarterly Clip Contest.
Before joining The Pilot team, Randall was the director of photography at The San Francisco Chronicle (2003-2007). In 2005, his team was honored by both a Pulitzer Prize in Feature Photography (Deanne Fitzmaurice) and a POYi Newspaper Photographer of the Year (Michael Macor).
Randall learned his chops from 10 years of shooting, picture editing and page design at The Courier and Press in Evansville, Indiana and a fateful trip to The Stan Kalish Picture Editing Workshop in 1996. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Western Kentucky University with a major in photojournalism and a minor in business administration and he is a former president of the Associated Press Photo Managers.
Randall lives in Chesapeake, VA where he's raising two lovely, intelligent daughters and Polly the Poodle who can, on occasion, appear to be more clever than her master.
