We have some amazing students at Georgia State University and I feel like part of my job is to bring a lot of them to your attention. I scoured the Insta-sphere to find some of the best GSU student accounts and here they are in no particular order:

Whether you’re dipping your toes in to filmmaking or you have a few projects under your belt, you’ve probably asked, “What am I going to film with?” If you’re in a production class you have access to some quality cameras, but what about when you’re not in a production class? Should you get a DSLR or invest in a camcorder? Is Canon or Nikon better? And what the heck is ...

I love how artistically influential Georgia State is as a school. We strive to be self-taught and excel in everything we do. Throughout the year I wanted to  be able to spotlight some of the great artists we have here at school. So here’ s a look at some of the cool student photographers you may not know about:

If you’re passionate about something then you should find any excuse to do what you’re passionate about. It’s easy to focus on the infinite number of challenges that might lead you to say, “I want to do something, but I can’t because…” But all you need is one reason to do your passion and all the challenges just become part of the fun. From my experience, film is probably one ...

There’s one question I almost always hear once I tell someone that I’m a film major: “So, are you going to be the next Stephen Spielberg?” It’s at this moment when I hold my breath, count to three and politely nod and excuse myself. Another, far better question I hear is, “Why did you choose Georgia State University?” Now that’s a question that’s worth a legitimate response.

When most people ...

As you know our campus is not a traditional campus. We’re not bound by walls or built in a certain formation. WE LIVE, LEARN, AND THRIVE IN THE CITY! A place where art is produced on the walls and where architecture goes higher and gets more creative. Scrolling through Instagram, I found some of the best campus photos taken by Georgia State students. Check them out and feel free to follow ...

Cool Info for Student Photographers

I’ve always been a huge fan of photography. I remember flipping through thousands of magazines dissecting every part of a picture attempting to figure out the camera angle, lighting setups, and what equipment was used. That’s how I ultimately realized my passion. I came up with the idea to write this post in order to provide cool info for new student photographers such as myself, because it is the most amazing job in the world.

Most people would describe the best summer break as going on a vacation, leaving the country, and sleeping. Ultimately, having the most natural form of rest. However, my ideal summer break consists of going straight to work. I’ve always been a firm believer in working as hard as you can now, so that you’ll be able to relax later on in the future. That belief led to my decision of getting straight to work as a photographer ...

I have recently learned how correct Wayne Gretzky was when he said: “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”  I have never been one to let opportunities pass me by. Thanks to this, I had the opportunity to spend two weeks in Cannes (pronounced more like “can,” as in “a can of coke” and not “cans of coke”), France, and show my film at the world’s largest international film ...

The Style Highlight of May

For this month’s style highlight we would like to introduce you to sophomore Julius High and freshman Hira Choudhry, who were photographed by Donte Maurice.

Julius High is a journalism major who is inspired by the minimalistic vintage style of the 80′s and 90′s. His favorite article of clothing includes none other than his tri-black turtleneck, and his favorite trend is the awesome mid-rise and striped shirts combo.
