Last Winter Pictures

With the end of the Winter trimester at Hebron comes the end of Winter (hopefully). Below are a few pictures I took of the kids at a local mountain. Hope you like them. Here’s the rest of the set.

Guys & Dolls at Hebron

I forsook acting after a traumatizing performance growing up in A Midsummer Night’s Dream as Snug (a joiner who plays the lion, has four lines, and is best known for being afraid he’s be unable to memorize his lines). Thankfully my lack of acting ability was forgiven and instead I was able to contribute by updating a program and photographing the dress rehearsal last week.

Here are more of the photos that turned out. Hope you enjoy.

Working in such an immersive environment with so many ongoing projects it can be easy to lose track of what’s happening outside of the bubble. The exact same thing happened at Mount Allison but I think that’s part of what made it such a special place.

However, the other day I was reminded of my time at the Newhouse School in upstate New York (which I left nearly nine months ago for the University of Virginia where I completed my degree with an internship in the office of Community Relations) when I got an email asking my permission to use photos I took at last year‘s Tablet Magazine Competition. It was my first real out-of-the-classroom photography experience and (after reassurance from professors impressed by the outcome that it was good work) it really helped build my confidence when it came to photography. I’m thankful for that learning experience and humbled that the Newhouse School webmaster thinks my photos are good enough to include on their impressively redesigned website.

Winter Photos from Hebron

Just wanted to share an assortment of hockey and other photos form this winter at Hebron. I also had about two dozen of my photos published in HEBRON, a publication by the Communications and Alumni Relations offices and took the majority of the photos posted on Facebook and Instagram over the past six months.

The latest from Hebron, Maine

Hey so it’s been a while since I updated things here. Since I last posted I’ve created a yet-to-be-launched WordPress news/inbound marketing site for the school, made my first print design piece (arriving in alumni mailboxes in time for the holidays), and have taken hundreds more photographs, some of which turned out well.

Between now and the next major presentation/trustee meeting in January, I hope to have

  • created a “Thankful” video on what Hebron students are thankful for in time for American Thanksgiving
  • live-streamed the yearly holiday concert
  • created a fall athletics slideshow
  • designed an alumni hockey event postcard
  • tracked an increase in website traffic from the news website to the main website
  • tracked an increase in engagement on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram
  • written a piece about an influential alumnus for the alumni magazine
  • photographed the one of the biannual Cohen concerts
  • photographed the alumni hockey games

and more.

I’ll be really busy with all of the above so I won’t be posting here often but you can follow my work

on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

Quick Update

Hi everybody,

So I’ve been very busy finishing up work to complete my M.S. in Public Relations here at Newhouse, taking a Visual and Multimedia Journalism class, interning in the marketing and communication office here at Syracuse University, and seeking a full-time job starting in June. Given that, posting here has unfortunately gone by the wayside at times.

Today though, I had time to tone and upload some photos from a trip to San Francisco. I also uploaded a Syracuse University “Sense of Place” video to YouTube, and had my post on WCG rock star Chuck Hemann’s talk about social analytics published on Syracuse University’s social media blog which (for which I’m seeking submissions from all SU students).

I should have a few more posts up before too long.

I’ll be writing about my best practices paper on higher ed use of social media (which will be written after I attend Michael Stoner’s talk on exactly that at PRSA’s Counselors to Higher Education Senior Summit next week), the forthcoming Tobacco-Free campus initiative campaign book my PR campaigns class group is working on with our client the Lerner Center, and hopefully at least a couple digital literacy/job hunt videos I’m working on at SU. (I know AP style but I’m going to use it whenever I’m not forced to abandon it).

For now here’s my Syracuse University sense of place video

and my apology for not posting often by way of a picture of an adorable dog I found in Berkeley, CA who was nice enough to pose for me:

Over the past couple months, as part of my Multimedia and Visual Journalism course at Newhouse I’ve taken hundreds of photos. Here are a few from around campus.
