Student Union - Deanna Washington
Gwinnett Technical College
At Gwinnett, from which she graduated last month, Deanna majored in commercial photography, but she’s currently hoping to make photojournalism the focus of her career. “I’ve planned a trip to Uganda in November,” she says. “I hope to be able to contact some nonprofit organizations to see if they offer internships where I could work as a photographer.”
A recent internship with a sports and action photographer proved invaluable to her education. “It was completely different from being in a class. Getting up at three in the morning to be at a location before the sun comes up, then being part of the whole photo shoot—that was so helpful to me.”
