Dominick has been a fully independent photojournalist contributing to newspapers and wire services for more than ten years. After graduating from Boston University’s College of Communication, Dominick closely covered numerous stories throughout New England of national significance. His deadline and extended coverage of stories like the Boston Marathon bombing, the prosecution of mobster Whitey Bulger, the murder conviction of former NFL player Aaron Hernandez, and the 2016 presidential primary campaign made the front pages of newspapers and websites around the world.
Since 2015, Dominick has been based in New Jersey, where he primarily covers stories both in New York and Philadelphia with occasional extension to Washington D.C. and Boston. Some of his assignments have included: both the Republican and Democratic national conventions; the presidential transition and inauguration; several United Nations General Assemblies and other matters; the sexual assault trials of comedian Bill Cosby; the heroin epidemic in Philadelphia’s Kensington neighborhood; as well as breaking news and special features for national and international clients.
Most recently, Dominick completed a mid-career Master’s degree at Columbia Journalism School’s Business and Economics Reporting program, where he further refined his reporting, analytical, and investigative skills with the school’s industry-leading faculty. He employed lessons from coursework in Economics, Accounting, Corporate Finance, and advanced journalism theory and methods to report concise stories as well as extended features. His Master’s Thesis, which was produced concurrently with the full-time academic course load, examined how the U.S. housing affordability crisis is unfolding in the city of Atlanta, GA.
Dominick describes his ongoing journalistic niche as a beat he calls “the changing economics of the American Dream.” That framework seeks to encompass the interweaving themes of access to – and inequality within – housing, finance, education, and healthcare in the U.S. Dominick is currently based in Princeton, NJ, and is available for freelance and contract assignments for print, photo, audio, video and drone journalism.
