Luis Sinco

Luis Sinco is a photojournalist with more than 20 years of experience. His career started with small, ethnic community newspapers in Seattle and Los Angeles. In 1987, he got a job as a reporter-photographer with Copley Los Angeles Newspapers. He was a freelance photographer for four years before joining the staff of the Los Angeles Times in 1997.

Sinco was part of two Pulitzer Prize-winning teams for The Times — for coverage of the 1994 Northridge earthquake and the 2004 California wildfires. In 2003 and 2004, The Times assigned him to cover the war in Iraq. He was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for his photo coverage of the battle of Fallouja.

Sinco migrated from the Philippines to the United States as a child. He grew up in the Pacific Northwest and has a bachelor’s degree in communications/journalism from the University of Washington. He lives in Long Beach with his wife and children.
