Instructor Jim Veneman is currently a visiting professor of photojournalism at California Baptist University in Riverside, CA. He is the former assistant professor and director of visual communication at Union University. Before coming to Union he was photojournalist for LifeWay Christian Resources in Nashville for 14 years. He continues to shoot assignments, covering the efforts in Iraq, Baghdad and on board the U.S.S. Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier. From these assignments, the book “A Greater Freedom” was produced. Veneman also covered the days immediately following the World Trade Center attack in New York City, meetings in Cuba with Fidel Castro, mission challenges in Asia, and several international gatherings. His photographs also provided the visual content for the book, “The Inklings of Oxford.” In addition to assignment work and teaching, Veneman assists in the direction of the Southwestern Photojournalism Conference held each spring in Fort Worth, Texas.
