Picture perfect job for cadet

AT 17 Jojo Newby has entered the world of professional photography and taken the first full-time photography position offered at The Daily Examiner in 15 years.

Jojo, our new cadet photographer, decided she wanted to make photography her career after a week-long work experience program in November 2009.

“At the moment I want to obviously get through my cadetship with the Examiner, but ultimately I would love to work for a rural publication like The Land,” she said.

“I am pretty happy with what I am doing now though, and with living in Grafton.”

Last year Jojo left school to go to work on a cattle station in Queensland. It was then, she said, that she realized Grafton really wasn’t that bad.

“I was one of those teenagers that wanted to get out of Grafton as soon as possible,” she said.

“When you leave though, that kind of changes.”

Welcome to the team Jojo, from all of us at The Daily Examiner.
