Langara Photo Imaging Grad Show

Blog post by Tina Winterlik © 2011 

Wow have things changed. It so Cool that the Langara Grads can get their Info out there with Social Media. When I graduated in 1995, well let's not even go just sucked shall we say.

This is so cool. They were able to raise money with a video, and they can tell everyone about it with Facebook and a Website.

Social Media is so awesome as it levels the playing field and each of these students can have blogs and websites show there work off to the world and not have to wait until some curator "might" like their work and give them an opportunity.

They don't have to spend a fortune on framing and slides and all those silly super expensive things we had to back them before we could even show our work to someone.

Yes, these Grads have a huge advantage in getting a name for themselves than compared back in 1995 and Social Media and the Digital Era is responsible for that.

That said the competition is still fierce, but I know we will see some great success stories here. Best of Luck Grads You lucky you have Tomo, he's really done awesome work with all of you. Cheers, Hope to see you at your Grad Show

About the Grads
The fourteen Langara Photo Grads of 2011 represent a diverse array of interests: from photojournalism to fashion, from portraiture to commercial photography, from traditional large format film to Photoshop wizardry.

We would like to thank the family, friends, loved ones, instructors, colleagues, mentors, classmates, clients and suppliers who have made this journey possible.
