Loyalist photojournalism testimonial:
As a self-taught photographer who stumbled into the world of photojournalism during university as an extra curricular, I felt that while having experience in the field I still could better my craft. After a series of lay-offs at New Brunswick dailies, I knew that the best choice to position myself successfully in the industry was to attend the Photojournalism program at Loyalist. The staff and environment fostered by the program allowed me to hone my skills, network effectively and make the connections I needed to propel myself to the next stage of my career. When I walked through the doors at Loyalist I would have not thought that it would provide me with the skills and opportunity to walk the halls of Parliament Hill and document federal and global politics every day.
