Mick Cochran has been involved in photojournalism for a while. Sure, he’s done other stuff, laborer, gas station pump jockey, hotel desk clerk, morgue photographer, all of which (along with a degree in English) prepared him for a few decades of visual story-telling for such fine newspapers as the oldest in Illinois (the Jacksonville Journal-Courier and The State Journal-Register in Springfield - both make the claim in one way or another). He was AME photo and graphics at The Charlotte Observer, art director at the Providence Journal-Bulletin in Rhode Island and director of photography at USA Today (the newspaper voted most likely to be found outside your hotel room door).
Mick lives in Jamestown, Rhode Island. Although officially retired, he freelances in design and photography and volunteers as a firefighter and planning commissioner.
