awards from the Georgia Trust for His- toric Preservation and Historic Savan- nah Foundation, and has been recognized for its work in historic preservation from the National Park Service, International Downtown Asso- ciation and others. Many of the univer- sity's buildings are of such esteemed architectural and historical significance as to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Woven throughout the fabric of Savannah, SCAD facilities include many historic buildings that have been rehabilitated by the univer- sity for contemporary use and for the benefit of SCAD students. Tis unique "recycled" urban campus is an ideal set- ting for the study of historic preserva- tion and has become a model for preservationists worldwide. SCAD has been instrumental in revitalizing down- town Savannah and making Savannah a top-10 tourist destination in America.

In what ways do your friends and family inspire you? Everyone and everything surrounding

me inspires me – from my family and friends to music, movies and other artists. Everything they do, the stories they tell me and their impact on my life influences my work and inspires me.

What type of photography do you enjoy most and why? Te photographs I take solely for my-

self are where I find my deepest joy in photography.

What are your plans as you start back to school this fall? Tis quarter, I will be attending school

in France at the SCAD’s Lacoste cam- pus. I’m privileged enough to be taking Photography Project Seminar II and Documentary Photography both taught by Tomas J. Fischer, who studied under Ansel Adams. I will be living in the dorms with another SCAD student and attending field trips with the school to various interesting places in France.

What type of career are you hoping to enter once you are finished with col- lege? I just started getting into fashion pho-

tography and portraiture in general. Aſter Studio Lighting I and II, I sort of fell in love with the control and perfec- tion behind mastering the technique of studio lighting in different situations. I'm hoping to grow in that specific field and hopefully land an internship with someone extremely experienced and preferably still active in the field.

How has your photography and style changed from when you first started? When I first started, I had to get the

cliché and typical out of my system, al- though I give myself some credit from even back then because I have some pieces I created then that I still think are appealing. I really matured and found out who I was through college. I’m still growing and I still have a lot to learn about life, but I know a lot more now than I did in high school. I have learned how to use different cameras such as field cameras and 35mm cam- eras and many different digital brands. I have also learned how to produce cyanotypes and salt paper prints. My black and white technique professor Ja- clyn is a perfectionist when it comes to traditional black and white film expo- sures and developing, which helped me with becoming the best I could be in the darkroom as well. I have also learned the archival process for prints of different mediums.

How has growing up in Moultrie inspired or molded your creativity and passion for the arts? Te Colquitt County Arts Center and

everyone there, such as Ms. Shovar, Mrs. Simpson, Ms. Mackenzie and Mr. Stephenson, all influenced me. Also, the Internet and the media as well as my grandmother, Linda Johnson, who always did arts & craſts with me as a kid are all responsible for my interest and passion in the arts.
