Photographer's Perspective: Meeting Deadline

Posted: Updated:

WESLACO- Different days come with different challenges in the news business. CHANNEL 5 NEWS photojournalist Brandon Castellanos says meeting deadline is a big priority.

Castellanos says he's learned to shoot faster, edit quicker, and always stay ahead of the game. He says the first probable case of zika was a big story for him.

"Video for the noon show, a look live for the 4:00 , a look live for the 5:00 and a package at 6:00 , plus pump patrol," Castellanos explained.

He wasn't afraid of the challenge.

After shooting all the video, he still needed to edit quickly to send all the material to the main station in Weslaco. He then set up a live shot for CHANNEL 5 NEWS at 6.

"It's days like this that really test what you're made of. It challenges you, but it's so rewarding at the end of the day," says Castellanos
