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.
We’ll be hanging out and going over whatever you want to learn in
Photoshop. Bring any photos you want to work on, or feel free to come watch
and learn what you can.
Let us know if there’s anything specific you want to learn.
Coliseum 3008 lab, 7pm, Tuesday 2/21
The University of South Carolina’s student NPPA chapter hosted their second meeting of the semester Tuesday with guest speaker Tracy Glantz. Tracy shared stories and photos from her experience with photographing recent election events as well as those of years past.
We have our next meeting scheduled: Tuesday, February 7th at Calcott 101 (that should be our normal meeting room for the rest of the semester). Tracy works at The State newspaper here in Columbia and will be speaking about her extensive experience photographing political elections. RSVP on facebook, and come with questions and any photos or anything you would like critiqued.
Also, don’t forget we have extra Journalism school t-shirts that will be available to purchase soon. Let us know here or in the facebook group if you’re interested in getting one and we’ll let you know ASAP.
Tuesday night (1/17) members gathered for a fabulous speaker, Sam Cranston, from NASCAR Illustrated. Sam showed us several of his photos that had been published and answered questions from students about his career. He was also generous enough to provide us with some copies of the magazine and point out where his work appeared in it. If you weren’t there, you really missed out on a great time. Keep checking back for more meeting updates and we hope to see you all come out soon!
We had a great time with Mr. Cranston last night, it was good to see
