Photo by Robert Franklin, Class of 2008
When asked about his experiences at Randolph Community College Robert says, “I still have flashbacks of Chuck Egerton’s classes, basically everything I do in my job today is something I learned during my time at RCC.” He went on to state, “the structure of the program, combined with great instructors, set me on a path where I could succeed in this very competitive business.” As far as advice to current students he says to use and learn about all the equipment at the school and make sure to work on plenty of video skills. Franklin shoots video on a daily basis and insists that being able to produce clean, slick multimedia will be one of the most important skills that Photojournalism grads will require to secure a job in their field.
