Jeff Scott grace has been a photographer for over 30 years , I am a graduate of The Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. I started out as a wedding, portrait and studio photographer, but with the advent of digital photography I switched my focus to photojournalism and accepted a position at La Opinion Newspaper the largest Spanish language newspaper in the US. I have covered sports, leisure, entertainment, human interest and politics. Some of favorite assignments were during the early 2000s when California wildfires and mudslides devastated many communities. I had the opportunity to follow firefighters, rescuers and other first responders into the chaos and capture images of these catastrophic events. Other stimulating assignments included entertainment shoots of Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Los Lobos, etc.
I also have a special interest in recording videos of drug cartel and immigration activity in Mexico. In late 2016 will travel to the Chiapas, Mexico/Guatemala border to record video of individuals hopping " the beast train" to seek a better life in the USA .
