High School Photography

Becoming a modern journalist means adapting and acquiring a wide variety of journalistic skills. Photography is one of the skills I have been developing along the journey. Below, I have included three excerpts from galleries I published online.


Mole Day

Published on Oct. 23, 2013 online

This is an annual event that takes place at 6 a.m. before school. I arrived early to shoot the event and posted a gallery later that day. This was the first full gallery I produced. This picture is my favorite from the collection because it is well-composed and captures the quirky excitement of the event.

Junior Varsity Football

Published on Sept. 16, 2013 online

Since I broadcasted every varsity football game, I rarely had the opportunity to shoot my favorite sport. To develop my sports photography skills, I started going to JV games on Saturday mornings. This is my favorite sports photo because it showed a marked improvement in my composition and clarity.

Winter Pep Assembly

Published on Dec. 2, 2014 online

Our pep assemblies are always known for being over-the-top, providing excellent opportunities for student life galleries. I posted this gallery about one hour after the assembly ended, which gave students a way to relive the hilarity quickly.
