Photographer / Videographer – Steering Committee, Media Team | Howard University Day of Service (HUDOS) – #HUDOS2019

Veritas et Utilitas, “Truth and Service” is the motto for Howard University and represents a vital component of the school’s identity.  I have a special affinity for educational initiatives, particularly those that drive young minority women to CREATE.  Service is a lifelong commitment and over the years, I volunteered hundreds of hours at various community-based and 501(c)(3) organizations.  While Howard University Day of Service (HUDOS) draws mostly undergraduate students, I was intrigued and sought a way to get involved.  I am pleased to announce I was selected for the Steering Committee and serve as the Photographer / Videographer on the Media Team.

To me, HUDOS provides a phenomenal way for students to become immersed in both the university and the community-at-large.  I am thrilled about having the opportunity to create visuals displaying Howard students as they come together, working hard to make a difference.  Check out one of my promo edits created using supplied photos and footage curated from HUDOS over the last two years, along with graphics I created to accompany student quotes on the service experience.

Summer 2019 has been remarkably busy (in a good way).  While the blog posts have certainly been more sporadic, I promise it’s for good reason.  I’d like to share some details on a recently completed freelance project in Astoria, NY.  In late July, I had the pleasure of working with photographer Regan Wood.  She is working on a super exciting project about eclectic New Yorkers and fascinating spaces.   I assisted on-set with several functions including lighting.  This connection was made by Jill Lotenberg, another lady of the lens that I had the pleasure of working with.  I’ll be sure to share more details about the project as it comes into fruition. Here are a couple behind the scenes snaps from the space:
