I’m Mike Christy — current staff photographer at the Arizona Daily Star in Tucson, Arizona. As a homegrown Tucsonan, I graduated from the University of Arizona in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism. I was grateful to have had the opportunity to spend some of that time studying in Orvieto, Italy.
Shortly after my graduation, I interned with the photography staff at the Colorado Springs Gazette. After a great semester learning and growing in Colorado, I moved back to Tucson where I accepted a photojournalist position at the Arizona Daily Star in 2012.
Working at the Daily Star has gifted me more experiences than I could have imagined. From shooting Friday night football, to following an immigrant family cross-country on a Greyhound bus, I’ve been fortunate enough to share such rich and diverse stories.
