Who We Are
FIC Photography Team is a group of students who are all about cameras and photography! They utilize their skills by hosting photography related events as well as by documenting the FIC community and events that take place every semester! Photography Team members work together to engage the community with their interests by sharing their passion and knowledge with each other and the wider community. FIC Photography Team are the people that make FIC’s memories last!
What We Do
The Photography Team meets weekly to coordinate and host photography-related events in-person and virtually! They enhance their skills and learn from other team members in order to get the most out of their volunteer experience. An example of an in-person event Photography Team hosted was a Linkedin workshop where students, staff, and faculty members got their professional headshots taken for free by experienced Photography Team members. Another event held virtually that continues to receive a lot of engagement is the semesterly Photo Competition held on FIC Instagram. Photography Team members are constantly working together to come up with new and creative ideas of engaging the FIC community with their interests, so we are looking for proactive members to bring their great attitude and innovation to the team!
When in person, FIC Photography Team are identified by their unique grey t-shirts at all of FIC’s large events including Orientation, Student Leadership Training, and much more!
