I am a senior at SIU, double majoring in commercial photography and advertising production. I am excited to be graduating in May 2013. Over the course of my undergraduate education, I have focused the majority of my photographic work on fashion, editorial and product imaging for promotional applications. I was very fortunate to have participated in the 2013 MCMA externship program which contacted SIUC photography alumnus, Eric Long, the chief staff photographer at the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum. I assisted him in his daily photographic work at the Smithsonian, gathering exciting and crucial professional experience before even graduating from college!
