Graduate Spotlight

Dana Entrott Headshot

Hallmark. The only college I applied to, because when it came to photography I knew it was the best. It ended up being one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have never been surrounded by a more determined and helpful staff. Every instructor here brings something to the table that makes Hallmark what it is. I have learned more than I ever imagined I would. I now feel as though I have the necessary skills to photograph any thing I am called to do: portraits, weddings, catalog advertisement, etc. And for that, I'd like to thank Hallmark. I'd like to thank Hallmark for being all that it is and for helping me begin my career in photography, where according to you, 'I will make pictures not take pictures.'
