Photographers Make the Cut

On Wednesday, Nov. 30th, fifteen Di student photographers waited up to 2 1/2 hours for an opportunity to interview for a spot to compete in the SkillsUSA Photography Regionals. Leading up to the interviews, students prepared resumes, selected their best photographs, and completed a location shoot in practice for what they might encounter at the state competitions in San Diego later this year. Individually, they presented their work and answered questions in front of a panel of judges that included Palm Springs/Laguna Beach wedding photographer Rick Nuffer, 2011 State Photography gold medal winner Spencer McQuinn, and Di instructor Mr. Cauthron. Getting feedback from a professional and contest perspective from an alumni helped to reinforce what students need to know in order to be successful as they move forward in the contest series.

Congratulations to the following students!
