MCLA Convocation Ceremony for the Class of 2025

I wanted to share a few highlights from the Convocation at my Alma Mater. Congrats to the incoming class of 2025!


Commencement time

Next to weddings, a college commencement is the most enjoyable event I get to photograph. I still vividly remember the feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction, and how proud my parents were at my own college graduation. Next week I’ll be shooting my third commencement for MCLA, which is also my alma mater, and I wanted to share a few of the images from the past two years that I really liked and could have easily added 50 more, but will leave room for the class of 2012!

I was privileged to meet Boston Globe Op-Ed columnist Derrick Jackson last night while shooting his photography exhibit at MCLA (http://www.MCLA.edu). Proceeds from the event benefited mulicultural programs and scholarships. He claims photography is a hobby, but I would pit his photography against any professional photographer out there. I was truly inspired to pursue more wildlife photography after viewing his work. His press credentials with the Globe allows access to political and sporting events that give him some enviable angles at events and his natural eye and talent are clear in his work. His Obama Inaugural and campaign photos are extraordinary.
