Odessa College

Associates in Applied Science - Photography

I worked to put myself through college, which often meant putting off classes I wanted to take until I could afford to take them, I may have taken longer then the typical two year student, but that afforded me time to hone skills and work with two excellent instructors. As well, I was employed as a Photography Lab assistant, which presented challenges from helping other students hone their skills to mixing chemicals and maintaining a clean and safe working environment.
