About St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The newspaper circulates throughout the St. Louis region, throughout Missouri and Illinois. The photographers are a dedicated team taking on every assignment from sports to features to fashion to news, which the Post-Dispatch covers aggressively. Often a Post-Dispatch photographer is the paper’s first reporter on a news scene, providing photos, video, and information immediately for the web, and later for print. It’s not unusual for a photographer to share bylines with reporters.
