Trevor Hart
Cosby High School
Midlothian, Virginia

The Roots
Photography courses at Cosby High mean film photography, from image capture to developing and printing. If digital files are needed, prints are scanned. Which doesn’t bother Trevor, who is going into his senior year and third year of photo instruction. The look of film...

Billy Wrobel
Tufts University
School Of Medicine
Boston, Massachusetts

Alumnus
Billy was featured in the Student Union column in the June, 2003, issue, when he was a junior at Fallston High School in Fallston, Maryland. At that time he said that although his career goal was medical research and biochemistry, he was sure that photography would always be a part of his life.

Publication in the column was an inspiration. “To someone who’s 16 years old, to get published in something that people around the country can see, that’s a pretty significant thing,” he says.

After high school Billy studied chemistry at Boston College, then went on to medical school at Tufts. Upon graduation in May, 2012, he will be Dr. William Wrobel, practicing diagnostic radiology.

Chris Fulcher
Newtown High School
Sandy Hook, Connecticut

Enterprise
At 17, Chris Fulcher’s already been in the photography business for over three years. And we do mean business.

He began taking photos at 14 because of his interest in paintball. “It became too expensive to play,” Chris says, “and I thought [photography] might be a way to still be part of the sport.” He borrowed his father’s camera and started shooting. A year later he had his own camera and his own business when an online magazine hired him to shoot at professional paintball events. “My parents would fly with me to some of the matches, and sometimes I’d travel with a paintball team.”

Rebecca is a senior at ASU and will graduate in December with a degree in technical photography. She came to the university intending to study graphic design, but when she couldn’t get into that program she switched to photography. It was a good move, as her interest in and love of photography grew from her first class, and today she cannot imagine doing anything else.

It’s a small magazine—51⁄2x41⁄4 inches, 16 black-and-white pages—handmade, unpretentious and totally engaging, charming even. Room 620 is published quarterly during the school year by the students in Joe Baltz’s third-year photography class at Joliet Central High.

Spectrum
Sam and Brandon are the sons of commercial, advertising, and fine art photographer Jody Dole, so it’s not surprising that photography would be of abiding interest.

Steven Spoto
Seffner Christian Academy
Seffner, Florida

Set Pieces

Although Seffner doesn’t offer formal photography classes, Steven, who is a senior at the school, added to his self-taught skills by joining the school’s photo club, which his father, Joe, instructs. “But what got me started in photography,” Steven says, “was the photography merit badge in Boy Scouts, which my dad also teaches.”

Steven’s been on the school’s yearbook staff for two years as a photographer and editor, and he’s won several first prizes in the Florida State Fair youth photography competition.

The documentary style and strong compositions that mark his black-and-white, toned, and muted-color photos attracted our attention. Steven says he’s definitely drawn to the carefully arranged, carefully thought-out image. “When I was first getting into photography…I saw the work of Ansel Adams, and he did a very good job of making sure that everything in his pictures was exactly the way he wanted it. I always thought that’s the kind of thing I want to try to imitate.

Tyler MacDonald
Lely High School
Naples, Florida

Drive

Two things were evident from our first look at Tyler’s photos: he’s got talent, and he’s got access. “My family is always outdoors,” he says. “We have a camper, and we go all around Florida.” Couple that with picking up a camera when he was 11 and you get an archive of images that includes “just about every species of animal native to Florida.” Tyler sells prints of his images at art shows and through his website, and he’s received several awards for his work.
