Welcome to my blog site. This is the first time that I have done this blog thing, but many people have told me over and over again that I need one! So here it is everyone! I am going to begin by introducing myself.
As you all know, my name is Jacob Adkisson. I am a 2005 Graduate from Hallsville High School. After graduation, I attended Kilgore College which I am graduating from on May 9. During my three years at KC, I truly found out who I am, and where I belong in life. I started out as a fine art photography major, after just one semester found out what I am truly passionate about, photojournalism. Photojournalism is truly my life, I carry my camera with me every where I go. There are many things that I would NEVER thought of doing without my camera. While at KC I became involved in student publications, The Flare (The Official Newspaper of Kilgore College) and The Ranger (The Yearbook Project). I began as a staff photographer then later began to write for the newspaper, and then finally working my way to the top as a Photo Editor and Page Editor. I owe a lot to the other students who I have worked with on the paper, and the advisors, Bettye Craddock and O. Rufus Lovett, which has significantly influenced my work as a photographer.
After graduation on May 9, I will be continuing my studies at The University of Texas at Arlington studying photojournalism. While at UTA, I will work for The Shorthorn as a staff photographer and hopefully move my way up to Photo Editor. I hope to receive my bachelors from UTA and then begin my masters. I am still unsure yet where I want to do my masters at, but it would probably be at The University of Texas in Austin!
