Bruce Moyer has been the deputy director of photography at the St. Petersburg Times since 2006. He came to the Times from the Hartford Courant, where he had been a picture editor for 8 years.
Moyer has won numerous awards in the annual Pictures of the Year International Competition, NPPA Best of Photojournalism and Society of News Design contests. He was part of a team of picture editors and photographers at the Courant that won the Angus McDougall Overall Excellence in Editing Award in the Pictures of the Year International Competition for three consecutive years, something no other paper has done. He also was named “Newspaper picture editor of the Year” for three consecutive years in the NPPA’s contest.
Moyer’s wife, Suzette, was Director of Design and Graphics at the Courant when they were in Hartford. The paper was named as one of the Best-Designed Newspapers in the World in 2001 and again in 2004 in the Society for News Design contest.
Prior to the Courant, Moyer was visual team leader at The Sun in Bremerton, Washington, and a staff photographer at the Naples (FL) Daily News. He graduated from the Southeast Center for Photographic Studies in Daytona Beach, Florida, in 1982.
Suzette and Moyer have two children, Dakota, 12, and Callie, 10.
