corrikimchi asked: Hi! I go to USC and really need to hire a photographer to take some pictures for my cheerleading hair bow website. I'd really like to do it on campus on the weekend. If anyone's available and would consider shooting it, please contact me back! I really need an experienced photographer.

Hi, I apologize this site was not kept up well and idk how old this is, do you still have a need?

Also, I’m still learning how this site works (I’m the new President) and idk if I’ll know how to find this message again - it may be better to email me at hollyt@email.sc.edu :)

New Officers

It’s been a busy few weeks, we have been doing a lot that hasn’t made it
onto the blog yet.
For now, we’ll update with a new officer roster:


- *President*: Jordan Osborne, rising Senior
- *Vice President*: Lee Walker, Senior
- *Secretary*: Elissa Visotski, rising Senior
- *Treasurer*: Courtney Price, rising Junior


We have one more event for this semester; we will be covering the USC Mud
Run on Saturday, April 21. If you are interested in going, let us know on our
facebook group .

I have enjoyed and appreciated my time as an officer the past three years.
Every year, I’ve felt like I had better insight into what a career in this
industry can be like. I’ll say this one more time: this student chapter for
NPPA can be whatever you want it to be, so I thank you all for contributing
to make it an unforgettable time.

Best of Photojournalism is judging the final Television category and it will be happening at the Coliseum on campus! (link to NPPA article) Judging will take place in the CEO room starting at 8:30am Thursday, March 15 and running throughout the day until Sunday afternoon. There will be a lunch for students on Friday at noon, which you will need to RSVP for so we can plan ahead. You can RSVP to prof. McGill. 
Student volunteers will be needed for the event. It is actually a great opportunity to get to know people who have been working in our field for some time. A list of the judges can be found here. Volunteering includes running the social media, media/projecting equipment, and general overseeing that all needs are met for the judges and other faculty/staff. Again, this is a unique chance to get deep insights into the journalism industry. 
Let us know if you have any questions, here or on the facebook group.

Realized I forgot to upload this last weekend. Just some quick clips of shooting the softball game with Rebecca Ducker.

Also, our photoshop night on tuesday will also be to help anyone enter the South Carolina News Photographer’s Association 2011 Student Photographer of the Year award. Aaron Middeke and Sarah Landon won all three spots last year, so it’s open game for everyone! Bring anything you think you may want to enter and we’ll help get it ready to submit. Ask us any questions you may have here, or on the facebook event
