Bryan Moss' photojournalism career spans four decades. He has worked at 13 newspapers in nine states and contributed to two staff Pulitzer Prizes.

While at the Courier-Journal and Times in Louisville, he was one of eight staff photographers who contributed to the paper's Pulitzer Prize-winning photographic coverage of a controversial court-mandated public school busing program intended to achieve integration.

Moss' contribution to his second Pulitzer Prize was at the San Jose Mercury News while he served as the paper's director of photography. The Mercury News won the Pulitzer for its coverage of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake that leveled the California's Bay area, leading to the calamitous collapse of a double-decker freeway in Oakland that killed 42 motorists and passengers.
