College Knowledge Challenge

Redpoint Education, partnering with College Summit, Facebook, and the Gates Foundation on a project (not yet publicly announced), came to me with a request to capture college students using their everyday technology – and it needed to be fresh, hip, energetic, and real. Their creative doors were wide open, though their initial vision excluded faces. After mooching off of my family’s network here in Seattle I scrounged together a half dozen very generous and up-for-it college (and post-college) people to play with me for a couple of hours. The shoot was a ton of fun, and despite most of the group not knowing each other before hand, the shots turned out just right. They also requested some instagram-like effects on their favorites to keep in line with the trendy feel; you’ll see some of those below as well.
