Most recently, my experience with photography has been more geared toward advertising, and I love it! Previously, I have interned at Style Weekly and Richmond Magazine where I learned the production side of the business, and I can honestly say I love that too. There is no aspect of photography that I do not enjoy. I have even worked at Sears Portrait Studio for a summer, and I learned the importance of attention to detail and how to achieve a genuine smile from all age groups. Also, I worked for over two years at James Madison University’s student newspaper, The Breeze, as a Senior Photographer and was on call once a week for breaking news. Also at JMU I took a Feature Magazine Production class where I held the Photo Editor position of Madison 101 Magazine and oversaw several other photographers. My senior year at JMU I was Lead Photographer for University Unions Technology and Design department, where I constantly faced new challenges and eventually learned to design my current website and logo. In all of these positions, I learned the power of communication with coworkers, clients, customers, and managers. My greatest strengths are my creativity, my ability to apply that creativity to any project, my professionalism, and my ability to establish a trustworthy rapport with a wide array of people. My main goal is to be a multi talented, valuable asset to a company that will recognize and utilize my talents, as well as test my abilities by providing new challenges.
