"The Digital Journalist" to suspend publication

The Digital Journalist, a 12-year-old online publication aimed at photojournalists, has announced that it is suspending publication. Founded by veteran photographer Dirck Halstead,pictured, the publication also ran workshops to teach still photographers to shoot in video, now the staple of many newspaper web pages.

"Unfortunately, our principal sponsor, Canon, whose market has also been impacted by these turbulent times, has decided they can no longer afford to provide their financial backing to The Digital Journalist," Halstead wrote in an e-mail to readers. "We are very grateful for the generous support they have given us over the years."

He said the publication plans to reorganize, look for new funds and continue publishing sometime in the future.
