Loyalist photojournalism testimonial:
My time at Loyalist was instrumental in launching my career in photojournalism. I appreciated that faculty always had their doors open to help discuss and develop ideas and provide much appreciated guidance as I honed my craft and forged a path in the industry.
The Photojournalism Advisory Board offered an important opportunity to meet with editors and photographers from a wide variety of publications from across the country. Their constructive criticisms, encouragement and professionalism buoyed my determination. I was honoured to join the advisory board a few years ago and am pleased to share my knowledge and experiences with students and in some small way mentor those who are up and coming.
The invaluable resources offered at Loyalist provided a solid foundation for success which were made possible thanks to the strong leadership, dedication and support of the exceptional faculty.
Thank you and congratulations to the wonderful faculty. Here’s to the next thirty!
