Graduate Spotlight

Gerald Martins Headshot

I took the plunge to come to Hallmark after almost five years of reviewing different schools across the globe. I wanted something that would give me an excellent foundation and a professional edge in a short period of time. While I knew the course was going to be an intense program, nothing prepared me for the life changing events that followed after I left my home country, India. Hallmark has made me tough, it has made me adapt quickly and it has challenged me to the very core. The guidance, support, training and mentoring I've received from my exceptional instructors has been fabulous. In addition, working alongside some of the world's future cutting edge creatives amongst my own classmates has helped push my own visual boundaries...

What's Happening at Hallmark

  • Portrait Studios

    Students get creative this week, as they produce a standard head and shoulders shot and then a completely different look of the same model.

  • Commercial Studios

    Photographing things that are reflective, like metal, is always a challenge. Students learn the best approach to tackle this problem, and practice by photographing basic silverware.

  • Location Studio

    This week, students practice the art of using Speedlites off-camera.

  • Speeches

    Working in teams, students present a prepared speech to their classmates on different jobs within the photographic industry.

  • Video

    Instructor Adam Quiros critiques student assignments with the groups, and introduces the use of audio gear.

This Week in Pictures

    Our student elves showed off their mad decorating skills over the weekend, as they dressed up the Portrait Studios for the holidays.

    What do most people fear even more than death? Public speaking! But our amazing students do it anyway, as they present speeches on various jobs in the photo industry to their fellow students and faculty.
