One of the toughest things about being the editor of the Daily Pilot is that this newspaper is often the training ground for young journalists who go from here to bigger, though not always better, things. We've sent reporters and editors to the Los Angeles Times, the San Jose Mercury News, the St. Petersburg Times and the Seattle Times, to name just a few. This summer, we've lost a slew of young talent. Our education reporter Christine Carrillo left us to go to work in public relations.

TONY DODERO I've written before how many of our talented staff writers, editors and photographers outgrow our newspaper and move on to bigger things. It's kind of the natural pecking order of journalism, though sometimes I feel like it's all backward. Community news is so important, at least in my estimation. But that's just the way of the world, I guess, and as is to be expected we've lost some good staffers of late, but the upside is that more talent is always waiting in the wings to fill the void.

He’d invite me to his house at night or on weekends and give me tutorials. He was my first real mentor, and I loved him dearly for it. Even if, once every week or so, my biggest assignment of the day was to run down to City Hall, pay his parking tickets, and on the way back stop at the liquor store and buy some more cigars.

It’s one thing to admire our beautiful community, but don’t you sometimes just want to record it so you can share it? You could always snap away with your camera phone, but it’d be a lot cooler if you knew what you were doing. Well, Ralph Velasco, who leads photo walking tours here and elsewhere, has you covered.   Tell us about your tours and background. I teach travel photography in a classroom setting throughout Southern California, and my students said that although they enjoyed the classes very much, they wanted to actually get out and shoot with me, as well, so I resurrected the idea of taking people out on walking tours to photograph in great locations, which I started developing back in Chicago, where I’m originally from.
