Trib photographer nominated for Emmy
Tribune-Review photographer Brian F. Henry's video of one town's remembrance of a fallen airman has been nominated for an Emmy Award.
Henry's video about the funeral procession of Air Force Capt. Sean Ruane, “In the Name of Honor,” was nominated for a Mid-Atlantic Emmy by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in the Single Camera Video Essay category.
The awards will be presented on Sept. 20 in Philadelphia.
The community of Kennedy came together on Jan. 25 to honor Ruane, 31, who was killed along with three crewmen when their Pave Hawk helicopter was struck by geese in eastern England on Jan. 7.
A Montour High School graduate from Kennedy, Ruane was a combat rescue pilot, a husband and father of a 14-month-old boy. He was deployed four times to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Another Henry video, “Never Forget,” won an Award of Excellence in the multimedia division at the Pictures of the Year International competition and received a first-place award in the National Press Photographers Association's “Best of Photojournalism” contest.
The video is about last year's Sept. 11 memorial observance at the crash site of United Flight 93 in Somerset County.
A 1999 graduate of Greater Latrobe Senior High School, Henry studied documentary photography at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and earned a bachelor's degree in Applied Media Arts. He also attended the documentary photography program at SALT Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine.
Henry became a full-time Trib photographer after a 2005 internship.
He lives in Greensburg with his wife, Megan, and daughter, Vivian.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
