I’ve taught Photojournalism at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University for over ten years, but, in the last seven weeks, I’ve done something different.
I had the pleasure of teaching at the Chicago Photography Center, working with adults for the first time.
We spent some time outdoors while they learned camera basics, then ventured into the cavernous basement of the CPC, formally a bank vault, and had fun shooting while I gave a lighting demonstration.
I am extremely proud of what my students accomplished in just a short time, documenting strangers like professionals and telling their stories. Thanks so much, CPC students, I can’t wait to watch you grow behind the camera!
