Graduate Spotlight

Karin Goodwin Headshot
I can honestly say, as cheesy as it sounds, that the BEST decision I could have ever made, was to attend the 2011 Class of Hallmark Institute of Photography. I never really understood the idea of doing what you love for a living or even that it was really an option, until I looked into this school. The facilities may be what get you in the door at first, but the faculty and staff make this such an amazing adventure. After graduating from Hallmark, I believe whole heartedly that I can do what I love for the rest of my life and never look back at the "what ifs". I'm confident that Hallmark has prepared me for anything that can come my way in my photographic career and if not, I know that I can call the school at anytime and get the guidance I need even after I'm gone.
