“Cover”ing a Year

Sorry for the lack of activity, but as an update, I wanted to document some of my favorite covers I have shot and designed/helped design over the past school year for The Towerlight. Doing cover is a stressful and at times lengthy process, but I love photos, I love typography, and I love Photoshop, so designing cover gives me a chance to use my creativity like no other job does. I’ve learned so much from each cover, and getting to work with other creative-minded people to create something is always rewarding.

It’s especially cool to see a photo I’ve taken as simple as a file photo, as was the case for “Eyes on West,” or from a photo shoot, like “Mr 1,000,” or just a luckily timed shot, as was the case for “We Are One,” become cover image. Afterwards, finding the perfect marriage of type and photo is challenging at times, but it is most certainly fun.

Below, you can find links to the articles to which these covers correspond.

London

And now, for the grand finale, here are my absolute favorite shots of London that I took on the trip. They actually ended up being pretty representative of all the different places we went!

It’s been almost three months (!!!) since the trip, and part of the reason I’ve taken so long posting them is because it’s like saying goodbye again. Each photo encapsulates one of the infinite wonderful moments we had. I truly believe I grew as not only a photographer but a human being over those ten days.

So herein ends my photo adventures of my trip to London — I hope it is the first of many. Until next time, London!

Notre Dame de Paris

The lovely Notre Dame de Paris, or Notre Dame Cathedral. There was something just truly awesome about this structure. The place brought me to tears; there was something truly amazing about being there.

Des panneaux

Various signs from around Paris. It was cool being able to see just French all around me. Je l’ai adoré.
