Lois Lane

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

A short, clear email from someone who has at least half a news sense, with a phone number so I can quickly check it out.

What tools and software do you use to do your job?

Pen and paper. I'm also a big fan of the humble iPhone, but there's nothing like the heft of a big lens hanging off a DSLR.
