PRESS ASSOCIATION OF JAMAICA REGRETS PASSING OF MICHAEL SHAW
The Press Association of Jamaica notes, with regret, the passing of veteran news photographer Michael Shaw. Shaw, as he was popularly known, was a 44-year veteran of the profession. He was fun-loving, dedicated, easy to get along with and an uncomplicated worker, who loved his job, took great pride in how it was executed and the outcomes of that pursuit. There is no greater demonstration of that than where he died … on the job, among his colleagues and practising the profession he loved.
