About Jeff Beiermann

I'm from Clarkson, Neb., a small farming town 100 miles northwest of Omaha, where I started my first career at a OW-H as a paperboy. I'm a 1984 graduate of Midland Lutheran College, and my first job was as a staff photographer at the Fremont Tribune. I left the paper after five years to freelance for The Associated Press in Omaha, and on Jan. 1, 1994, I joined the Omaha World-Herald. I am married to Julie Anderson, a World-Herald reporter, and we have two boys. I love to take nature and scenic photos and, like most of the staff, anything that gets us out into the state. One of the most interesting facets of being a photojournalist is watching history unfold. It's also one of the most challenging aspects, as it's important to be an observer only and record what is happening, most times in split seconds.
