Graduation Day - June 7, 2013

*** UPDATE*** I won a Loyalist College Photojournalism Program Faculty Awards of Excellence - The Paul Henry Memorial Award recognizes a commitment to news coverage, particularly breaking spot news. Loyalistphotojournalismblog



It's done, which is kinda sad, but I'm an official two time college graduate.  It was great to see all the 2013 photoj grads and the teachers.  I was happy to see that so many of us were able to attend (only missing 6 out of the 24 grads) but gonna miss everyone a lot starting tomorrow.

At the ceremony I found out that I won a faculty award so I am an award winning photojournalist (that's sooo cool).

Here are a few shots from the big day (I tried to make sure I've given photo credit where it was due).

Hoping to get copies of the official group shot and other candid shots from the rest of the gang soon.  I'll update with more photos I receive them.

Internship - Kingston This Week - Week Four (June 6) Published

And so it comes to an end.  This is my last week, as an intern, working for the Kingston This Week.  I didn't write as much this week but it was full of photo opportunities.  I don't really know what to expect in the coming weeks (besides graduation) so my posts might be a less regular, but I'm still freelancing and I hope one of my job applications goes my way.  I'll keep you posted (ha ha).

Events I covered: Public Works Open House, Port of Bath Marine Festival, EOSSA Tennis, Mikey on Board partnership with Two Men and a Truck, P3 Hospital group going to Toronto, Green MD's Day.

Stories I wrote: A column about me (carry over of my story about new author Jan Miller)

This is what got published (and again, some events/stories were held for next week):
