Bob Chamberlin

Bob Chamberlin has been at The Times as a photographer and photo editor since the 1980s.  He was the first Times photographer to go into a war zone, traveling to El Salvador after the Maryknoll nuns were murdered in 1981.  In the early 1980s, he journeyed across the U.S., working on news, sports and features photography. He went to Haiti in 1985 where he photographed Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier two months before the dictator fled the country.

In 1985, he became a senior photo editor and helped shape coverage on events including presidential election conventions, the First Gulf War in Iraq and the 1992 riots in Los Angeles.  After the riots, he volunteered to return to the field as a photographer.  On the Metro photo staff, he covered a variety of assignments in Los Angeles and abroad, and he also worked as a weekend photo editor for the Sunday edition.
