Description

Episode 112 - Moriah Ratner.

Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Moriah Ratner. Moriah is a freelance photographer based in Portland, Oregon. She graduated from the photojournalism program in the Newhouse School at Syracuse University in May of 2018. During the summer of 2016, Moriah interned with The Hill, a political newspaper on Capitol Hill, as a press photographer covering hearings, press conferences and breaking news on Capitol Hill and at the White House. Following this experience, she spent a week interning at Annie Leibovitz's studio in New York City, assisting with administrative tasks and researching shoot concepts. Moriah was a staff photographer for Syracuse University's independent newspaper, The Daily Orange, and previously held a position as an assistant photo editor. This past summer, Moriah was the photography/videography intern for the Naples Daily News in Southwest Florida. She recently completed a position as an assistant digital content producer at Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB), an NPR affiliated radio station. At OPB, Moriah pitched and produced a short documentary video about a family with a 4-year-old daughter battling terminal brain cancer.

Personal projects are often associated with aspects of childhood in how young adolescents cope with trauma. Moriah documented the journey of a 13-year-old girl with a rare and terminal brain cancer for almost two years in hopes of de-stigmatizing the ways in which the public conceptualizes childhood cancer. The story has been published in the Washington Post, National Geographic, and NPR.

Moriah is a member of WPOW, NPPA, and the White House News Photographers Association. Moriah is the 2018 recipient of WPOW’s Lena Grant, the 2018 recipient of NPPF's Reid Blackburn and Richard Clarkson Scholarships, and the 2017 recipient of the Virginia News Photographers Association George Smith Memorial Scholarship. Moriah won first place in the 2018 Hearst Journalism Awards Program for Picture Story/Series and gold in the documentary category of the 73rd College Photographer of the Year contest. Moriah attended the Eddie Adams Workshop XXX and the New York Times 2018 Portfolio Review.
