During the week of March 16th-22nd, DATA students from Digital Storytelling and Digital Imaging courses worked alongside professional photographers during El Paseo Fashion Week.
Each night of Fashion Week, 4 students had a place on the photographers' platform at the end of the runway to shoot photos and video of models, designers, and attendees. Still images will be sent to event coordinators and used in student portfolios, while a promotional video piece will be created to highlight the DATA student experience at El Paseo Fashion Week. The hundreds of photos and hours of footage captured will all be put to good use by students.
DATA students were also able to work as red carpet photographers, taking photos of attendees and models as they arrived and headed in to the main event.
More than 25 DATA students were able to earn real-world professional experience during Fashion Week.
