Student Spotlight

John Cumiskey: senior in biological sciences

"One of the biggest reasons I took photography was because I am a big conservation nerd and therefore love looking at nature pictures, especially from National Geographic. While I am not able to travel to the African Savanna or the Amazon Rainforest, I wanted to learn the principles these photographers use to capture their images. And in case I do visit one of these places in the future, I can take photos like those seen on National Geographic."
