Link: It was 20 years ago today… | Robert Seale Photography Blog
It all started with a pre-dawn phone call in the winter of 1992 from George Honeycutt, then Director of Photography at the Houston Chronicle (in those days, George worked from 6am-2pm, and I…..well, I did not). Working as photo editor of the school paper and co-editor of the college yearbook, I was just getting to bed some mornings as George was showing up for work. Anyway, the phone rings, and there’s a gruff voice on the other end of the line, “Seale, you got any tickets?” In those days, the Chronicle had great company cars, full size Ford Broncos, and they even issued one to the intern, so your driving record, not just your photo ability, was a consideration. So with my unblemished driving record intact, I began one of the most formative experiences of my life: a summer internship at the Houston Chronicle.
