ABOUT

DSC_3270.jpg

My name is Michael Cummo and I am a 28-year-old photojournalist currently working as a staff photojournalist at the Stamford Advocate in Stamford, Conn. In addition to my full-time work at the Advocate, I spend two weeks a year photographing the BNP Paribas Open, a major tennis tournament in Indian Wells, Calif., as one of the tournament photographers. I was previously the head of the photography at the Martha's Vineyard Times, a weekly newspaper in Vineyard Haven, Mass. While getting my degree in journalism, with a concentration in photojournalism, I had internships with Sports Illustrated, the Boston Red Sox and FMG Studios in London, England. I was also a staff photographer, editor and board member of the student paper the Daily Free Press.
