Another semester has begun and the first edition of the Photojournalism Pioneer is online now. This series of our award-winning student online publication is an opportunity for third semester students to have a “toe-in-the-water” experience writing and shooting for publication under tighter deadlines. The Pioneer in the third semester is a smaller version of the full featured Pioneer which will begin again in January. Each edition is produced by a team of two third semester students, with solid freelance contributions from their classmates in first and second year. To download the Sept. 29 edition use this link below.
Our Photojournalism students do some amazing work. Sometimes, with all the emphasis on class assignments and grades and all the other things that keep students busy throughout the year, we don’t get the chance to show off some of their project work. We hope this ongoing series will address that. Here is part one. Make sure you visit the blog often to see what we are up to!
Second year student Chris Donovan comes to us from New Brunswick. One of Chris’s ongoing projects is “Vive L’ Acadie”,documenting the culture and history of The Acadians, the French Canadian population of Atlantic Canada. Here is a sample of some of Chris’ images. To see more of Chris Donovan’s work, please use this link to his website.
