is no doubt that photography will be the basis of my future career," Hillary
wrote to us. "Whatever job I pursue will be built around it."
A junior at Valley, she completed the school's two semesters of photo instruction, then took a commercial photography course at Central Academy, a program for gifted and talented students from Des Moines' middle and high schools. After graduation she's considering attending Rocky Mountain College in Montana. "I've never been to Montana before," she says, "but it seems like a good place to find inspiration for photography."
Hillary cites as influences Dorothea Lange, "for her raw depiction of the real world," and Ansel Adams "for his ability to take something that has been seen a thousand times, and capture it in a way that no one would have ever thought..."
Hillary Berg was recommended by Rick Baker, an imaging educator at Valley High School.
