Geeking Out with the NPPA’s Melissa Lyttle – PhotoShelter Blog

If you’re a photojournalist, you need to know Melissa Lyttle. And even if you have a different niche, you should know her anyway. Lyttle is an independent visual journalist in Los Angeles, having previously worked as a staff photographer for a number of newspapers in Florida for 15 years. She founded the now-retired A Photo a Day website, which led to the launch of “Geek Fest” – an annual celebration of photography that moves from city to city each year. And in all her free time, she serves as President of the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA), bringing a new perspective and energy to a storied institution that is facing pressure from the online world and changing demographics.
