Veteran Photog Douglas Graham Quits Roll Call

Roll Call’s longtime  photo editor Douglas Graham has had enough of This Town. So after 30 years in the business -17 at CQ Roll Call – he’s heading for the exits. And he doesn’t mince words about why.

“I’m just tired of it.” Graham told FishbowlDC. “It’s like Groundhog Day.  Covering Congress is such a laser-focus part of journalism, instead of working for a regular daily where you get to cover lots of different things. And I’m just sick of Congress’ inability to do anything interesting anymore.”

The commute probably had something to do with it too. Graham lives in the Blue Ridge mountains of West Virginia, between Leesburg and Winchester. Downtown DC is a two-hour MARC train away. And as he puts it, “I like where I work, but I really like where I live.”

He had nothing but kind words for his colleagues at Roll Call though.

Tom Williams and Bill Clark are absolute masters,” he says, referring to his staff photographers. “And being their boss, I got to take credit for all their work. You couldn’t ask for a better team. And (former RC photog) Chris Maddaloni, I can’t forget him. I loved my job, loved working in DC, loved working at CQ Roll Call.”

Doug’s last day of work is January 31st. Then he’ll be freelancing in DC through February before returning to West Virginia to work on a new venture with his wife.

His final thoughts on leaving DC?

“I’m sad to leave, but not that sad.”

CQ Roll Call Photog Has a Way With Tears

CQ Roll Call staff photographer Chris Maddaloni has reeled in two awards from White House News Photographers Association Eyes of History 2013 competition. One award is a first-place prize in the feature category. The other (for this award-winning picture at right) is for the “On Capitol Hill” category, where his photograph placed in the “Awards of Excellence” level.

“Chris’s photo won in the feature category and was a single image pulled from his photo story on the K-9 bomb detector dogs of Capitol Hill,” wrote Doug Graham in an email to staff. Chris spent a year following this story and produced an amazingly powerful body of work. Each image stands alone on its technical and aesthetic merit and together they tell the story from puppy to full time bomb detector K9 officers. It’s an impressive body of work that clearly shows dedication and commitment at an extremely high level.”

WaPo‘s Ricky Carioti, Marvin Joseph and Jahi Chikwendiu were also recognized with photography awards.

Maddaloni Returns to Roll Call

After five years, award-winning photographer Chris Maddaloni has returned to Roll Call.  Chris left the newsgroup in 2006 for Ireland, where he covered a number of  big stories such as the first day of the Northern Ireland Assembly at Stormont Castle. After spending two years in Europe, Chris returned to North America to cover the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq for the Army Times. Chris had four embeds with U.S. troops, and he won several awards for his coverage of combat operations.   Maddaloni’s second first day is today.  Congrats to Chris!
