Contest Reminder!

Hey everyone! Just a reminder that the first contest of the semester is next week. The theme of the contest is "Stranger." The rules are that it has to be of a picture of a person that you have never met before in your life. You ask them right on the spot if it would be alright if you take their picture, then have them sign a release form.

Remember that you can enter up to 3 photos. There are two categories: Edited, and Unedited. You can enter two in one category, and one in the other. Unedited means that you did not change anything about the picture, not even a little contrast. Anything else means that it goes in the Edited category. The pictures need to be printed 8x10.

If you have any more questions check out the school website with more details!

Can't wait to see what you guys bring next week!!! :)

So I figured the easiest way to do this would be to just post the text of the Model Release form here and you can all copy and paste it for yourselves. Or, if you have another you would like to use, by all means.... So here you go! Can't wait to see everyone's Prints next week!


In exchange for consideration recieved, I hereby give permission to [YOUR NAME] to use my name and photographic likeness in all forms and media for advertising, trade, and any other lawful purposes.

Amy Worthington - Self Portrait

My name is Amy Worthington. I was raised in South Jordan UT. I'm a senior graduating in July with a degree in Communications and a composite minor in Photography and Graphic Design. I'm excited to get back into action this semester with photographics society, it's been a while since I've attended and I'm stoked to be back!

Kris Fryer

I am from New Hampshire. (East of the Mississippi) I am a communications major with an emphasis in graphic design. I love sports and being outdoors. I love all types of music and have a massive collection of it. 

Peace from Pack

My name is Blake Pack and I am from the oh-so-distant city of Idaho Falls. I was born and raised on a dairy farm there, and thus completely fulfill the stereotype of the Idahoan. Interestingly enough, though, I am the only dairy farmer from Idaho that I know (besides family). I am an English major with an emphasis on Professional and Creative writing (but I guess its not really emphasizing when you are working on both divisions, eh?) I have been here forever and will be here for many more years to come... And last but not least my favorite type of music is a whistling man/woman. It's even better when they do it together because male/female duets are next in line for my favorite type.

Jordan Johnson

My name is Jordan Johnson, and I'm from a little town called Simsbury, Connecticut. I like to do a lot biking in my spare time, both mountain and road. I also like to go on random drives to no where and listen to music, and looking at the scenery. I got into photography a little while back but never really did too much with it. I'm into landscapes mostly, but I also love getting night shots, although they don't usually come out as well as I would like.
