New U Photographers

Last November I began to shoot for the New University, the official newspaper at U.C. Irvine. I thought it would be a good opportunity to get some experience and use my talents for my school but mostly it gave me an excuse to be out taking pictures.

Last night was the last meeting of the quarter and after we went out to Aldrich Park to take some head shots to use for press-passes etc. Most of us are used to being behind the camera and don't like our pictures taken so it was definitely a good step out of the comfort zone :)

The whole team wasn't there but here are some shots of those who were. It has been fun getting to know these people better and I am looking forward to working with them Spring Quarter!

This is Drew McCarroll in the New U office before we went outside. He is the Photography Editor which makes him my boss. He's been a good friend and pretty much runs the show.
This is Scott Roeder, one of the New U's best sports photographers. He has really challenged me to keep my game up, especially when shooting the sports events. You can see more of his work here.

Greg...you are so pro it hurts. I feel so lucky and fortunate to have someone with your talents take my picture. I am not exaggerating when I say that you are one of the best photographers I have ever known. Your enthusiasm for the craft shows in the remarkable progression of the quality and ingenuity of your pictures. And you have a real talent behind the lens too--you are great at connecting with the talent and making them feel comfortable all the while getting the most out of them. That is something you simply can't learn. You are a born photographer.


P.S. I love my photo and that usually never happens, so thank you very much.
