Corey Perrine (b. 1979) is a staff
photographer for the Naples Daily News in
southwest Florida. He began his career at
Robert E. Lee High School in Springfield, Va.
as an entertainment reporter and
cartoonist for The Lance in 1995. Swearing
off the newspaper industry, after a rigorous
two-year experience, he stumbled into it
again after discovering his love affair for
people’s stories and documentary
photography.

After graduating from Brigham Young
University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in
Photography Dec. 2003, he experienced a
brief stint at the local paper in Provo. That
work lead him to a group of weeklies in
Kansas City, Mo. While there, he was a
regular freelance photographer for The
Kansas City Star. In March of 2006 he was
hired at The (Nashua) Telegraph and worked
their until Feb. 2010. He advanced to his
next job at The Augusta Chronicle, where he
stayed until losing his boss from industry
cuts in Aug. 2011. Seeking a traditional
leadership-structured photo department, he
had a brief stint at the Omaha World-Herald
for 9 months. He left after wanting to be
back at a community-centric paper.

Corey’s work has been published in various
publications around the globe and has
garnered recognition along the way. He’s
been recognized by Pictures of the Year
International, the National Press
Photographers Association, the Atlanta
Photojournalism Seminar, the Northern Short
Course, the Southern Short Course,
Sportsshooter.com, and state/regional
organizations.

While not chasing light or a good story,
Corey spends time with his beautiful wife,
Sarah, and loyal cattle dog, Sam.

“What drives me is the ability to connect with
people through images and reflect that to an
audience to foster understanding. It is my
hope I can be a voice for others, that my
images provoke thought, conversation,
create action and/or cause change. If I make
you say, ‘wow,’ ‘whoa,’ laugh or cry, I’ve
also done my job.”

Nothing to see here. Move along.
