As my kids here at the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication start turning in their final portfolios and handing back all the gear we’ve loaned them, the tremors start … how am I supposed to live without a way to share my world?
The fact that we supply every kid with everything they need is a wonderful thing, eliminating a financial barrier to studying photojournalism. But it also means a lot of them have not been buying – or even pricing – gear for the last few semesters. The sticker shock can sting.
To help guide them, I have a series of blog posts about putting together your own kit. Pour another cup of coffee and dig in.
