Graduate Spotlight

Jenn Bakos Headshot
When I first discovered Hallmark, I read every part of the website and read the catalogue from cover to cover. I wanted to make sure that this school was right for me, and it was. Attending Hallmark was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I now feel confident in my work and have the skills it takes to pursue my passion for photography as a career. I've learned and grown so much in the past ten months as a photographer and as a person. It was a great experience from start to finish. I was amazed from the start by the fantastic guest speakers at orientation, the wonderful faculty and staff and the access to top of the line equipment and facilities. Hallmark is truly a unique and perfect place for anyone who wants to become a professional photographer.
