Large Format Portrait of Chuck Egerton by Laura Mueller
With the kind invitation of teacher/photojournalist Laura Mueller (Woods) Chuck Egerton, RCC Photography Dept. Head visited four photography classes at Davidson Day School in Davidson NC on Monday November 4. Davidson Day School is K-12 and its upper school students have a dedicated photography classroom and excellent full time teacher.
The school had an admirable mission: We strive for our students to be:
•Independent thinkers who articulate their ideas with confidence
•Students who advocate for themselves and others
•Engaged students who take intellectual risks
•Critical thinkers who are enthusiastic problem solvers
•Lifelong learners who chart their own paths in college and life
•Respectful ethical citizens who are adept at addressing global challenges
This was Egerton's second visit to the school. He presented information about the RCC Photography program, showed examples of RCC student work including still and multimedia and demonstrated use of the view camera.
