”Although it has been about two years since my summer photography internship with the CHPF, I wanted to reach out once more and send another thank you. When I was searching for an internship, I was originally feeling quite lost as to what I wanted my career in photography to provide myself and others. Finding the position you had offered was so crucial to my post-graduate life so far and how my current work life is also going. This internship gave me unbelievable direction and propelled me into many new discoveries about how I work and how I can use photography as a tool. My internship helped me see such a larger global picture through the materials handled, and this translates directly to my position now. I think of George Hunter and his life still, so often, and will too often recount his life stories that I discovered in my short time there to nearly anyone who will listen! A little long winded, but I felt it important to thank you again after all this time. My internship helped shape so much of my current identity as a photographer, and I cannot be grateful enough for that opportunity.” J.D
