11/13/2012 - DAYTON, Ohio -- Master Sgt. Jeremy T. Lock will present "20 Years as an Air Force Photojournalist" on Nov. 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.

During his presentation, Lock will discuss how he became a photojournalist in the Air Force and where it has taken him, what military photojournalists do, his latest projects and where photojournalism is going in the future. In addition, he will show many of his photos including those from his numerous deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan and Africa.

As an editorial photojournalist, Lock has a passion for immersing himself into and capturing the essence of the world's people, tragedies, celebrations and everyday realities by empowering viewers to live and feel those moments through his photographs.

Lock has experience, training and insight that few photojournalists can claim. He's been in the thick of war battles, shooting with his camera rather than a gun, and has even earned a Bronze Star. He's documented the realities of life in disease and poverty-stricken Africa. He's covered diplomatic celebrations, funerals and historic meetings. He is specially trained to shoot from the air and under the sea, and is the only military photographer to be recognized six times as the best in the business ("Military Photographer of the Year" in 2002, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2011).

He also has translated his broad military experience into expert photography for numerous major media publications worldwide, including National Geographic, TIME Magazine, The New York Times and Los Angeles Times. In 2002 he worked in collaboration with 125 of the world's leading photojournalists on a book titled A Day in the Life of the United States Armed Forces. His work also appears in many books, including NYC Life Going On and The War in Iraq. One of his latest projects was working as a New York Life photographer on a documentary for PBS titled "Slavery and the Making of America."

This lecture will be held in the museum's Carney Auditorium. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. For more information or handicapped seating arrangements, contact the museum's Special Events Division at (937) 255-1743. Filming or videotaping the lecture is prohibited.
