Every year graduation season begins around the end of March and it’s normally a festive and proud time for teachers, parents, and students – a busy season for Senior and Graduation photographers. In 2020, however, things changed.
Covid19 changed our history in a way that nobody could have expected and humanity had to rethink how we live our daily lives. In the US this meant the graduates and their celebrations had to be re-engineered. Virtual graduations were born and for photographers the zoom lens has become indispensable in capturing the grads in their finery. It’s given us a new, creative perspective which has been well received.
The true worth of these amazing people who teach our children has been spotlighted during this very tough time.
It’s their dedication and commitment that has enabled innumerable students to achieve the goal of graduating with their moment being documented by senior and graduation photographers in new ways.
To these heroes we all say: “Thank You”. My special prayer is that when we get back to some semblance of normality post-Covid, this will not be forgotten and these educators critical to the future of the nation and the world will be treated with the respect they deserve.
Congratulations to the class of 2020!
