Andy Jacobsohn is a freelance editorial and commercial photographer learning to settle down in New York City. He is also a photo editor at Newsweek Daily Beast. Jacobsohn, a self-described “Florida Boy” earned a degree in visual journalism from the University of Central Florida in Orlando. He owes much of his remarkable experiences in storytelling to the editors of Major League Baseball, The Dallas Morning News, The Florida Times-Union, ESPN and McClatchy-Tribune. Jacobsohn believes that one of the greatest privileges and rousing thrills of visual storytelling is the access to enter a stranger’s home to make their portrait and departing with a friend. In his free time, the Parrotheaded-Floridian studies the culinary possibilities of avocado and maps out his next upstate New York-bound camping trip.
NYC-based photographer Andy Jacobsohn worked as a staffer at Newsday for 22 1/2 days and shares some photos he took during that period of time.
