Gina Ferazzi

Gina Ferazzi grew up in the small New England town of Longmeadow, Mass. She has been a staff photographer at the Los Angeles Times since 1994. Her wildfire photos were part of the staff Pulitzer Prize win for Breaking News in 2004.

Ferazzi completed a photo documentary on black tar heroin, which depicts a couple living with their addiction. She has also covered many national sporting events, including the Winter Olympics in Japan, Salt Lake City and Italy. She has traveled around the country with presidential candidates, covered stories in remote parts of Mexico and photographed local and national news events including Hurricane Katrina. Her audio slide show about gold mining in the San Gabriel River is featured in the book “Photojournalism: The Professionals’ Approach” by Ken Kobre.

In 1992, Ferazzi was named California Photographer of the Year while working for the San Bernardino Sun. She began her career in photojournalism at the Kennebec Journal in Augusta, Maine. As a two-sport scholarship athlete at the University of Maine, Orono, she graduated with a degree in journalism. She still holds the record for most goals in one field hockey game, with 5.

A self-taught photographer, her passion for photography began in eighth grade. With the help of a friend, she built her first darkroom in a basement closet.
