Mark E. Johnson is the Senior Lecturer of Photojournalism at the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication where he oversees the Visual Journalism emphasis. He frets over curriculum advancement, develops online learning modules covering digital literacy topics for journalists and launched the college's first online news lab in 2008. A visual storyteller since the age of five, he worked as a photojournalist and director of photography for newspapers, wire services and magazines before ascending the ivory tower, from which he often descends to talk to industry groups and pronounce that journalism is most definitely not dead.
