Visual Statement: Biological Station
This summer I spent my summer at the University of Michigan Biological Station, both as a student and an intern. My time was divided between my general ecology class, where I worked in the field all day with my peers, and my job as a media and communications intern, where my main role was taking photos. I spent eight weeks in Pellston, Michigan learning about ecological principles fundamental to my environment major while also practicing and improving my photography skills, taking photos in the field. It was a combination of two of my favorite things, nature and photography. It was an opportunity that allowed me to be creative, learn more about ecology and photography, and make lifelong friendships.
