Marc Ellison is a freelance photojournalist, and data journalist for The Vancouver Sun. In recent years he suffered a pre-midlife crisis, and has since turned his back on a decade-long IT career to pursue his passion for reporting.
The training Marc received as part of Carleton University's Masters of Journalism program has since helped him establish a freelance career in Canada, South Sudan and Uganda. He will be returning to Uganda and South Sudan in 2012.
His writing and photography has appeared in: The Globe and Mail; The Toronto Star; MTV Canada; The Vancouver Sun; The New Nation (South Sudan); Mega FM (Uganda); Canadian Geographic; OpenFile; Human Rights Watch, and The Vancouver Observer.
