About Rockne

As a 3-year-old, I published my first newspaper, the "Roll News", on my mother's typewriter. At 15, I picked up a camera and started shooting for my high school and local newspapers. Today, I'm a photojournalist based in Portland, Oregon.

Photography has been a way for me to experience the world up-close, to be a part of big moments and little moments of great significance. Each story I've worked, every place I've been, has brought me face-to-face with some new facet of our shared humanity, and I aim to spotlight that humanity in my images.   

I'm also a baseball and soccer fan, musician, runner and cyclist. I drink way too much coffee.

The story I'm most excited about is my next one. I'm available for assignment worldwide.
