About Lori King

I am a photojournalist and educator who has dedicated my life to telling written and visual stories. 

My journalism career began when I joined the U.S. Army as a print journalist at 18. I served eight years Active Army, and 13 years in the Ohio Army and Air National Guard as a writer, photographer and newspaper editor. I retired from the 180th Fighter Wing in Toledo in 2000.

I have been a photojournalist with the Toledo Blade (Toledo, Ohio) newspaper since 2005. My real passion is teaching. I am currently a photojournalism/multimedia adjunct instructor with Kent State University (Kent, Ohio), Wayne State University (Detroit) and Owens Community College (Toledo, OH).

I am often asked how I do it. I can manage a hectic career schedule because it's not really work; all of my jobs are hobbies I get paid to do! 

Education: BS in photojournalism from Kent State in 1991. MA in Journalism Education at Kent State in 2012.
