Matthew Craig, the Page One photo editor of The Wall Street Journal, has left the business newspaper.
In an email to his colleagues Friday afternoon, Craig wrote:
I walked in the door five years ago with a lot to learn and no idea what would be in store for me at The Wall Street Journal. At one point or another you have all taken a chance on a young guy from California and I hope I met or exceeded your expectations.
This was the greatest first job in the long history of first jobs. Thanks for the incredible opportunity and I wish everyone the very best.
Craig had been with the paper for slightly more than five years. A Boston University graduate, Craig worked as a staff photographer at Harvard University while in college.
