Assisting Palm Springs Photography

During the 2011 El Paseo Fashion Week, Di student Angel Torres made such a strong impression on photographer Rick Nuffer that it opened the door for him to earn a paid assistant position. Several students, including Angel, have now had the opportunity to assist photographing weddings in various Palm Springs and Laguna Beach locations.  
"Your kids have been 100% amazing! Thank you, thank you, thank you! They have truly changed the way I shoot my weddings. Initially, I just wanted some help carrying my gear and holding my lights but they have become so much more.  They are more valuable to me as 2nd photographers then kids who carry equipment. But most of all, they are courteous, respectful, smart, ambitious, creative and the clients love them!  I don't know how you do it, but keep it up. Amazing.
-Rick Nuffer
This is truly an amazing opportunity for students in the Di program that will provide ongoing work-based learning experiences through the summer and during the school year.

  14. Angel did a spectacular job with the wedding photos. A lot of pressure must have been put on him because brides are usually irritated quickly.

  21. El Paseo was an experience not to miss, but sadly I was not smart and I passes up the opportunity. Pictures that the kids in DATA took were very vibrant and beautiful. Hopefully I will get the same opportunity to participate in this event next year.
