Hello, I’m Breanna Daugherty. 

I am currently enrolled in the Department of Journalism Graduate Studies Program in the Media Analytics and Management program at Ball State. I am also a graduate assistant on campus for two professors in the Department of Journalism.

In May of 2017, I graduated from Ball State with a Bachelor's  of Arts from the College of Communication, Information, and Media, where I majored in photojournalism.

I was named the 2016 Indiana College Photographer of the Year by the Indiana News Photographers Association.

Previously, I was the editor-in-chief, multimedia editor, and assistant multimedia editor of the Ball State Daily News. The Ball State Daily News is the student-run newspaper.

During the summer of 2016, I was the photo intern at the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel. The internship was through the Hoosier State Press Association Eugene S. Pulliam Internship Program.

After a few years of no activity, I was elected by my peers to be the president of the NPPA Ball State Student Chapter. I started the revitalization of the chapter and helped organize the first rendition of Shoot for Good - Muncie. 

When Indiana started to celebrate it's 200th year of statehood, I was selected to be part of a team covering Indiana's Bicentennial Torch Relay for six weeks. I traveled to 19 counties and documented the various forms of transportation for the torch.

Capturing the story and emotion in all of my photos is what I strive to do when I'm making photos. Sports photography has become a passion of mine because I find it the most challenging.
