CHS photographer honored for rendering aid — and getting the picture — in 11th and Pine protest shooting

Seattle photographer Alex Garland has added a lot to CHS news coverage of Capitol Hill over the years. Last summer, Garland, as usual, found himself in the middle of an important neighborhood news story and, as usual, he got the picture.

But as gunfire rang out in a crowd of hundreds of people and dozens of police and National Guard troops in a June protest at 11th and Pine, Garland’s role became much more than photojournalist as he moved to quickly render aid to Dan Gregory, an unarmed Black Lives Matter protester shot as he tried to disarm Nikolas Fernandez, the brother of an East Precinct officer, after Fernandez drove into a demonstration crowd at 11th and Pine.

This week, the National Press Photographers Association recognized Garland with its Humanitarian Award as part of its 2020 honors:

On June 7, 2020, Garland, a freelance photographer, reporter and writer, was photographing a protest against police brutality and racism in Seattle. Garland was closeby when Dan Gregory was shot in the arm as he attempted to stop the driver of a vehicle that appeared to be heading towards a throng of protesters.

“I care deeply about documenting the moment, but ultimately I see myself as a community member as much as a journalist,” Garland writes about the moment at 11th and Pine when he decided he needed to put aside his camera and act. Continue reading

Happy birthday, Morning Update Show

Omari Salisbury of Converge Media reports from E Pine during the summer’s Black Lives Matter protests

CHS grew to be friends with Omari Salisbury and the good folks at Converge Media the way we tend to meet others in the business — getting in the way of each others shots, talking over one another at press conferences, and tripping over each other trying to get out of the way of a cloud of pepper spray. The strongest voice you hear above in the “Capitol Hill Clash” video report from CHS’s Alex Garland? That’s Salisbury.

Over the summer, Converge and its Morning Update Show became the CNN of CHOP. We were happy to have the help — CHS still had the rest of Capitol Hill to cover. Between the two, nobody else was at the scene day in and day out through it all from beginning to end. Continue reading
