If you’re looking to learn how to improve your camera skills, hang out with friends or become more knowledgeable about film and alternative photographic processes, becoming a member of SUU’s photography club sounds like just the move for you.
James Culbertson, a senior this year, is majoring in photography and hopes to pursue a career in it. Culbertson is currently focused on landscape photography, but after scoring an internship with the Iron Games Crossfit Competition, he has become more interested in event photography.
Originally an illustration major, he took a photography class his Sophomore year, found his niche, and switched majors. He is currently the Photography Club president.
“Photography club is a cool place for students to get together. A lot of people have a camera but don’t have anyone with similar interests to hang out and talk to. Photography club is somewhere they can do that.” Culbertson said.
According to their site on T-Bird Connection, “There are opportunities for members to try out different photographic techniques, and advance their skills in the studio, lab, or in the field.” The club also plans to go on trips and participate in demos.
The club will host a photography exhibition both this semester and next semester, which will be showcasing in the library. You don’t have to specifically be a member of the photography club to send your work in. If you’re looking to get your photos out there, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The club meets every other Wednesday in EVT 205, at 7 p.m. To join the club, visit their page on T-Bird Connection here or attend one of the meetings, where either President James Culbertson or Vice President Michaela Garcia will give you more information.
