New Blog Focuses on the Visual Student

By Beacon Staff

National Press Photographers Association recently announced the launching of its new blog, The Visual Student. Geared toward students studying visual journalism, the blog provides a space where students can hear from photo directors, professional photographers and fellow students firsthand.

The blog has started strong with Internship Q&As with The Oregonian, The Dallas Morning News and the St. Petersburg Times, among others. 2008 College Photographer of the Year Tim Hussin writes about editing portfolios for the CPOY contest and Angela Shoemaker discusses applying for a Fulbright grant. The site also contains links to grants and scholarships as well as competitions and other Web sites of interest.

This has the makings of a great resource for students and professionals alike.
