Raul Roa

I am a Southern California-based photojournalist with more than 17 years experience in daily newspaper photography. I am currently staff photographer for the L.A. Times Community News group of papers which includes the Glendale News-Press, Pasadena Sun, Burbank Leader and La Cañada Valley Sun.  I have covered everything from news, sports and features and major incidents like fires and floods to professional, college and high school sports.  Previously, I was staff at the Pasadena Star-News, Whittier Daily News and the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. I've also photographed concerts, special events and major awards shows in Southern California. As a hobby, I enjoy photographing nature, specially birds and I wrote a book on my experiences in the Galapagos Islands.
