SAVANNAH STATE UNIVERSITY
Savannah State University is an institution living up to its unofficial motto — "Tell them we are rising." This phrase, coined by the university's first president and founder Richard Wright, uniquely embodies the growth of this beautiful historic campus located on the salt marsh of coastal Georgia. The university is Savannah's oldest institution of higher education and as a native Savannahian, I felt very fortunate to collaborate with the university's communications and marketing team on a recent visual campaign.
Higher education photo shoots for university clients requires a collaborative approach, one that often involves a mixture of photojournalism and commercial photography. Many of the best college images come from both styles of shooting. Ultimately, the key is authenticity. Below is a selection of campus imagery illustrating some successes that second photographer Jeremy Allen and I had during our two-day visit to Savannah State at the end of March.
Special thanks to Ms. Loretta Heyward, director of communications and marketing, Dean Chambers, marketing/communications design manager, and the interns that were vital to helping us capture imagery showcasing SSU's campus.
