  1. Hello. First I like to say thank you for your amazing photos of sgt weichel. I served with Dennis in 2005 in Iraq we were in the same squad and fought the insurgency together. You captured every moment beautifully. I really enjoy viewing your other work great shots. I’m an inspiring photographer myself, I deployed 2 more times in 2007 and 2010 to Afghanistan and Iraq and was able to use my D300 to capture combat footage. I was wondering how do you build a client list such as AP, new York times and such?

    Thanks for your time. If you don’t respond to my email, I still want to thank you for shooting Dennis funeral the way it was meant to be.

    • Hi Juan, Thank you for the compliment. It is always tough when I get the call to photograph a funeral, but I feel it’s my duty to capture the moment, the emotion of those who loved the departed. I think of it as my tribute to them.

      I’m sure your combat footage would be very valuable to many publications. I’ve always wanted to do war photography, but not sure I really want to be shot at. I do enjoy the thrill of dangerous situations though.

      Starting out in this business is very hard. The best thing you can do is practice and build up a portfolio. You then show this portfolio to your local newspaper and hope they might use you for assignments. Send me a personal email to stew@stewmilne.com and we can discuss this more.

  2. Hi Stew–I am not wearing my St. Pius V school hat tonight, but my Providence Parks Department hat. We are hoping to name a park playground after Sgt. Weichel later this spring, so I started looking for photos of him and his family and ran across your AP photos of his funeral.

    Thanks for posting these photos–they are very moving and a testament to your skills and the power of the camera to touch our lives.

    Bob
