Visiting the Magic Kingdom at Disney World in 1977? Be sure to take lots of photos! Film is expensive, so try and follow these tips by GAF Photo from the 1977 Disney World Guide. Via Vintage Disneyland Tickets. More vintage Disney.

Anonymous asked: this is probably really obnoxious, so i get if you don't want to respond... But do you have any advice for high school students students submitting their photography portfolios this month?
It’s not obnoxious, I get messages like this all the time! Art school admissions want to see that you’re passionate, talented, and creative; they need to know that you are a worthwhile investment for their institution. When I was submitting my portfolio, I tried to show variety and individuality. I wanted the schools I applied to to have a good understanding of my personality as an artist and show them that I challenge myself to be creative and experimental.

Anonymous asked: Hey, I'm from Parsons too! I'm actually a first year student that got in for Photography and have felt confused about pursuing it recently just because I find myself really wanting to be in film and television rather than just photography. I was wondering, as a photo major at Parsons, are you able to do a lot of filmmaking within the major?
Sort of. I think The New School for Public Engagement has the best/biggest film program at The New School. I’m a BA/BFA student, and I took a filmmaking class last year at NSPE as my elective for Parsons. There’s also a Design class in the current photo curriculum (although they changed it after my year so it may be a little different) that I’m taking next semester which is dedicated to video. I’ve done videos for my Parsons photography work and I’ve seen other students do the same. Many of the professors have worked in video as well.
That’s really all I know about it, but I hope that answers your question!

Anonymous asked: hey I just wanted your opinion on something. I'm going to a community college before transferring to a major art school for photography and I don't know if I should take fine arts or digital media at the community college. which one do you think will help me with my photo stuff more? thanks :)
It really depends on your direction and both programs. If you’re transferring to a major art school I don’t think it would necessarily matter since you won’t be majoring in either anyways. The best thing to do would be to talk to people in both programs (faculty and students) to see what they’re like and decide which one best fits what you want to pursue.
