About Billy Suratt
I’m a photojournalist, writer and eNinja primarily covering the Mid-South United States from dual bases of operations in the Lexington, Ky., and Atlanta, Ga., metropolitan areas, with an additional emphasis on Nashville, Tenn.
What’s an eNinja? Basically, a jack-of-all-trades where electrons are involved: think Web developer/social media consultant/online marketing strategist/PC hardware technician (on steroids).
You name it, I can do it. If you’re already doing it, I can help you do it better.
I’m a top-notch general assignment photographer capable of handling nearly any editorial assignment, but my photojournalism specialties are politics and political photography, sports photography and concert photography (portfolios coming soon, and I do realize not already having them is extremely lame).
As a writer, I’ve mostly written for small newspapers you’ve never heard of which aren’t even in business anymore. But I did it really well and it’s not my fault they’re not in business anymore.
Other professional writing experience includes some non-bylined reporting for The Associated Press, a whole bunch of Web copywriting crap and — perhaps most impressively — everything on this website (it used to be a Web site, but AP finally fixed their stylebook). You can check out some of my published tearsheets over at Pressfolios.
I’m a nerd. My hobbies include movies and television, cooking, fantasy football, collecting sports memorabilia, thinking about setting up a freshwater aquarium again one of these days but never getting around to actually doing it, and traveling.
My favorite bloodsport is politics, followed closely by Black Friday. I enjoy long walks on the beach, short walks through parking lots, unseasonably warm winters and not being poor (none of which I get to enjoy as often as I’d like).
Jeffrey Gitomer follows me on Twitter. I was once yelled at by Charlton Heston. I may in fact be what Willis was talkin’ ’bout.
Anticipating your desire to contact me, I’ve created a whole page just for that. Let me know how I can help you make more money — so you can give me some.
