About Larry

An Olympus Visionary since 2003, Larry C. Price is a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist and a 2016 Emmy Award recipient for his documentary broadcast segment for PBS NewsHour spotlighting child labor in the Philippines.

Larry has worked as a photographer and editor for some of North America’s largest newspapers, including The Philadelphia Inquirer, Baltimore Sun, Fort Worth Star-Telegram and The Denver Post.

“I began my digital journey with an Olympus camera in hand and never looked back. Small, rugged and precise, they’re perfect for any type of photography.”

As a photographer at Star-Telegram, Larry won the 1981 Pulitzer Prize for spot news photography for his coverage of the 1980 coup in Liberia. He won a second Pulitzer Prize, for feature photography, in 1985 for the Philadelphia Inquirer with a portfolio documenting civil wars in Angola and El Salvador. He also has contributed to 13 A Day in the Life book projects, including the acclaimed A Day in the Life of America and A Day in the Life of Africa.

Price is currently working on a long-term project about the health effects of global pollution under grant funding by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting in Washington, D.C. His documentary short film about the dangers of underwater mining in the Philippines won an Emmy award in 2015.

Larry travels globally when working on editorial assignments and highlights the OM-D E-M1 Mark II paired with the M.Zuiko 12-40mm F2.8 PRO zoom as his favorite Olympus camera and lens combination. Closer to home, he enjoys photographing botanical subjects, landscapes and urban architecture in southern Ohio.
