When we were approached by Clarke County Schools to to photograph their students, faculty and campuses, it was a project that we got excited about.
With all of the changes that have occurred since we were last in school, it would be an insightful look into the life of modern day students, a glimpse not into our past, but the futures of all of the young individuals that will be leading our county – and world – forward in the future.
My, how times have changed. With the rise of the internet and all of the advances that come with it, it is an exciting time for all of us to have so much information available at the click of the mouse or the touch of a tablet.
We were intrigued to see all of the new ideas in education put to work, and became just a little bit jealous of what resources these young students have at their fingertips.
Between the awesome facilities, a focus on sustainable farming, music, dance and visual arts, we can definitely see the positive impact that this diverse generation of students will have on our communities.
We appreciate the opportunity to document these bright young minds and the faculty and staff that pour their hearts into what they do every day, and hope this glimpse gives you the same optimism that it did us.
Education: Lamar Dodd School of Arts
Lamar Dodd School of art is where UGA's brightest creative minds come to grow as artists, and they have a fantastic place to do just that. With countless disciplines to choose from, there is an awesome sense of diversity and individuality on display. I was fortunate enough to be asked to capture this energy on display for their new website (check it out here). Thank you to everyone at Lamar Dodd for giving me such great subjects and facilities to photograph.
Education: Lamar Dodd School of Art Metals
The Metals program at Lamar Dodd is a fantastic example of devotion to one's craft. It was inspirational to see the students using both modern and traditional means of building such beautiful works of art. From using the silversmithing tools to participating in iron pours, this school provides such great opportunities to learn and create.
Education: UGA College Lifestyle
We have been blessed to do a lot of work with the great Faculty, Staff and Students of UGA, which has allowed us to document so much of the college experience. Here are some of our favorite shots.
