Pro For A Day!

It’s time for Pro For A Day.

This has been a great experience in the past for the photo students who participated. It is great for students who are more interested in photojournalism, documentary photography, working with current events, and newspapers. The event plays out as a live Mock story is unfolding in the news. It starts with a press conference about an event and goes from there. Photography students would shoot the event, prepare images, and upload to the web all in a few hours just like a real news cycle.
