We love it when great news pours in about our alumni in Digital Photography! We just heard this from recent graduate Marcelo Barbosa: “Since moving to Lisbon, Portugal almost 2 weeks ago, I’m writing to tell you I’m starting work at VRX Studios to be their photographer for Europe! Their Head of Photography already has two assignments for me: one in Morocco and another one in London. I’m very excited and thrilled to be able to work as a photographer in just 2 months after my graduation! All of my teachers helped prepare me for this job, so thank you!”
In other news, VanArts was represented well at the Applied Arts Creative Futures Expo in Toronto this week.
As reported by our illustrious Program Manager Jeff Bell on-site through Instagram, several of our Photography graduates had their work up for award consideration, including Maylies Lang, Tessa Sheremeta, Blair Browne, and our own Studio Manager Kitt Woodland, who took home the Young AACE Award in Photography! It was great for us to see, and to top it off, our award-winning graduate Reem Abdel-Jabbar, who recently re-located to Toronto, joined our booth to speak with young aspiring artists at the Expo.
Also this week, award-winning photographer Kristina Zambrano tweeted to us from Venezuela about her latest win in the Pets Portait Division: SILVER at WPPI 2015’s “2nd Half Members-only Competition!”
Congratulations, one and all! You are making VanArts proud!
