Nicole Frugé – Freelance conflict photographer


San Antonio Express-News staff photographer Nicole Frugé is leaving the paper under her own terms to pursue freelance work. I’m sure she will do amazing things in the future.

“It’s so hard to say goodbye to so many close friends. But I’m very excited that I have an opportunity to follow my passion and hopefully I’ll produce some meaningful stories in the process. I’ve made the decision to go freelance so I can focus on conflict photography and documentary projects.”

You can follow Nicole’s work through her blog The Last Picture Show.

Also, you can see Nicole present her work with a amazing lineup of photographers at the “best little underground photo conference out there” – GeekFest in St. Petersburg, Florida this September 11-13. If you have the means at all, you’re a fool not if you pass this up.
