Travis Fox is an aerial photographer and the Director of Visual Journalism at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York (CUNY).
In his role at the J-School, he oversees the Photojournalism, Documentary, Broadcast and Web Video programs. He also teaches the only Drone Journalism course on the East Coast.
Before drones and academia, Fox was recognized for helping establish a new form of video storytelling on the Internet. His short films for The Washington Post and FRONTLINE were described by Studio 360’s Kurt Andersen as “ambitious, subtle, tough, and remarkably beautiful.” Legendary television producer Tom Bettag adds: “extraordinary, sensitive and insightful.”
In 2006, Fox received the first Emmy Award presented to a web video producer. He was also the first and only person to win both the Editor of the Year and Videographer of the Year awards from the White House News Photographers Association. He has won dozens of National Press Photographers Association and Pictures of the Year International awards, and has been nominated for a total of eight Emmys.
