We have our final coach. Welcome Jill Knight!
Jill is a staff photographer/video journalist
Prior to being hired by The News & Observer, Jill completed internships at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Charlotte Observer. She was named the 2013 North Carolina Student Photographer of the Year by the North Carolina Press Photographers Association.
In 2013, two of Knight’s long-term photo essays, “Special Delivery” and “Duty, Honor, Gay Marriage,” appeared on the New York Times Lens Blog and in The New Yorker. “Special Delivery” was later published in Marie Claire Australia and the Penn Stater alumni magazine. It also placed first in the National Heart Journalism Awards Photo Essay category.
When she is not taking photos, Knight enjoys cooking, gardening and spending time outdoors with her husband and dogs.
