Looking at A&T first game clips for documentary. This is going to be awesome!
A great night to end the 50th anniversary celebration for the Randolph Community College’s Photography Department. Great to see old friends, students and co-workers. Thanks to Johnny Horne and Cindy Burnham who gave me my first big break as they did for so many RCC PJ grads over the years with internships and first jobs!

I am covering class lectures for my boss this week, so I am bringing in graduates to cover my lectures. First is Allison Isley, fresh off speaking at the Grandfather Mountain Workshop, she went a little long, but the class really enjoyed her talk.
The next RCC Photojournalism class documentary has started, and classes are not even in session.
Jen and Nathan were at NC A&T before 6am for the first Blue and Gold Marching Machine workout of the season. The class is doing a documentary this year on the 100th year of the HBCU’s marching band!
So nice to see my student’s film on the big screen again, the Real to Reel International Film Festival in Kings Mountain. This audience was really into the documentary, laughed at the funny parts, reacted to the suffering, etc. in fact, this was the best crowd reaction so far for the film. Tonight had film makers from Texas and Illinois too, each film maker took questions from the crowd after their film.
During the day I got to hike a state park that has been on my list since last year’s 52 Hike Challenge. Crowders State Park. Did the more interesting Crowders Mountain trail to Rockhop a great hike to the Crowders Mountain overlook.
Class of 2018 RCC Photography graduation recognition!
