Robert Dodge, principal of Robert Dodge Visual Media, oversees creative services at Mitchell Point Communications. Robert brings 30 years of experience in journalism, photography and public relations to your project. He is a story teller and wants to tell yours.
Robert and his team starts with beautiful visuals, including compelling stills and riveting video. They'll add a splash of graphics, creative design and tack-sharp text. And then they will put it altogether using the latest digital technologies. Whether you need traditional print, an innovative website or the latest social media, your communications are going to be memorable and have impact.
When Robert started in journalism, it was fairly simple. There were reporters, photographers and editors. Each day they published a daily newspaper. Now, it's a lot more complicated, but they also have a vast array of new and exciting tools to tell your story.
But whatever strategy they employ, Robert believes strong content is essential to reaching your constituencies. Robert brings that high standard to both his written and visual work, whether it be simple head shots for a website or a multi-media documentary.
Those high standards were instilled in Robert during my career in highly competitive journalism markets. He spent nearly 25 years as a Washington correspondent for The Dallas Morning News. Robert left the newspaper business in 2006 and worked in public relations for a major Washington trade association before forming his own business.
More recently, Robert used that skill set to produce his first photography book, Vietnam 40 Years Later. The book, published by the prestigious Damiani Editore of Italy, contains 110 pages of compelling colorful photography that reveals what has happened to this Southeast Asian nation since the end of the Vietnam War.
In 2013, images from Vietnam 40 Years Later won top honors in FotoWeekDC’s Uncover/Discover contest. In 2010, an image from the project won honorable mention in the Santa Fe Workshop’s LIGHT contest. During his newspaper career, the Dallas Press Club honored him for a Dallas Life Magazine story, Mr. Bentsen and the President, which chronicled the close relationship between Treasury Secretary Lloyd Bentsen and President Bill Clinton. In 1982, he was a key member of a team of Dallas News journalists who were Pulitzer Prize finalists for spot-news reporting on the bankruptcy of Braniff International Airways.
One of the most rewarding experiences of his career was serving as president of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association, 1999-2002. He also served on the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications, the academic and industry group that awards accreditation to journalism colleges. Today, he is a fully certified LGBT vendor by the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.
