Connor Sumner – Term 3, Year 1
On any assignment, I have one objective: Catch your eye. As photographers we work first and foremost through sight. And from sight we can trigger in viewers and of the other senses. A successful photograph can trigger any feeling. My job, in essence, is to start a chain of reactions within you, the viewer, and to continue it once the image is out of sight.
My main focus in this body of work is to use people for more than face value. On a basic level, I am motivated to use all my tools, both technical and aesthetic, and then take it a step further. Particularly with people, I am pushing myself to craft a photograph where the model plays as intricate role as my lighting choices or my composition, etc. And as with lighting, perspective, or composition, a model has an infinite amount of potential. People are light to me, a tool I can mold to succeed.
From an early age, photography played an intricate role in my life. On elementary school trips, I always had my mother get me a camera so I could document my experience and surroundings in a way no one else could. Film photography followed me through high school and college. And after graduation, I realized I should be sharing my perspective, and eventually create a carrier out of my passion: photography.

Follow this link to view more of Sarah & Richard:
Sarah and Richard got married on a cold and snowy/rainy day in late March on Martha’s Vineyard. It was a ceremony with an attendance of a bride, groom, justice of the peace, photographer, and the Hob Knob Inn keeper. Prior to the ceremony they played an intense game of checkers then after the vowels were exchanged they ventured out into the pouring rain with umbrella’s in hand.

Ryan McBride – Year 2, Term 3 Work
April 28th, 2011 Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee were hit with multiple tornados. All were in the range of EF3 to EF5 speeds, the worst speeds for a tornado. April was a record month, with over 600 tornados. I went down to Ringgold, GA, a small town in North Georgia just below the Tennessee border where a EF4 destroyed the town. It continued into Cherokee Valley killing 8 people and wounding others. But this town is not broken and the people remain strong as ever. What I witnessed down there was tragic, overwhelming, heart wrenching and beautiful all at the same time. It changed how I thought and feel about many things about Georgia and it’s people and the strength our people have when situated with a devastating loss.
