Photographing Students

As a photographer I have long believed that there are many stories contained in portraits of people.  As I work on projects across our college I come into contact with students and faculty members on a regular basis.  I have begun making informal portraits that I will periodically share here.  They will, perhaps, give you a glimpse into another aspect of our undergraduate and graduate programs and the people who choose to embrace them.

This first series of images were made one morning around 7:30am in the Arboretum at Penn State while waiting for an ornithology lab to begin.  Several students arrived early to help set traps for birds that would later be released. The class, WFS 406, is part of the Wildlife and Fisheries Science program.

Class leader

Emily Thomas, graduate student in Wildlife and Fisheries Science (WFS), was the teaching assistant for the class.
