Keith Graham

Associate Professor


Personal Summary

Associate Professor Keith Graham joined the faculty in 1998 after a distinguished career as a photojournalist and editor for a string of newspapers, including the Miami Herald, San Jose Mercury News and Roanoke Times.

He teaches courses in photojournalism, publication design and freelancing strategies.

A Mississippi native, Graham earned a bachelor’s degree from Vanderbilt and a master’s in photojournalism from the University of Missouri. An internship at the Miami Herald led to a job covering such things as the Cuban boatlift, street riots, drug trials and the Miami Dolphins.

He then joined the San Jose Mercury News and spent his last two and a half years there as a picture editor and photographer. His assignments included national political conventions, the World Series and the Super Bowl.

From there he traveled to Virginia’s Roanoke Times, where he eventually became director of photography.

Keith has four sons, and enjoys running, triathlons, gardening, reading and sports of all kinds. His priorities, he says, are his love for Christ, his family and teaching.

He is currently working on a multimedia documentary about Montana’s surviving one-room schools.
