Graduate Spotlight

Emily Rose Darrow Headshot

In May of 2013, I took a chance. I packed my things and took off to a place I had never been. After a fourteen-hour drive I ended up on the east coast at Hallmark's doorstep. I took a chance, and it changed my life. No decision had ever been as impactful or significant in my young life. As a photographer, I would have never matured and grown as much as I have if I hadn't attended this institute. Sure there were struggles, sure sometimes we all wanted to quit- but nothing, and I mean nothing, can take away the beaming pride I felt sitting at my final review and realizing what a cultured, thoughtful, and complex artist I had become. If you want to be a photographer, there isn't even an option. Hallmark will teach you things and nurture you in ways that most artists will never experience in their entire careers. I'm honored to be an alumnus, and sad to see it all go fast, but I will take Hallmark with me wherever I go in life. I am forever grateful to be part of such an expansive and unique family. The journey doesn't end. You take the wings they give you- and you soar.
