Graduate Spotlight

Jeff Fitzgerald Headshot
Hallmark has easily been the best 10 months of my 19-year teenage life. It wasn't until my Junior year of high school when I discovered my love for image-making. It was fun, but then my Senior year rolled in and I realized I had no idea what I was going to do after graduation. At first I didn't even consider photography as a career option. I assumed that all photography programs had adopted the starving artist approach and would refuse to teach anything about how to make a living taking photos. But then I found Hallmark. I clicked the link to Hallmark's homepage and immediately thought it was a scam. A joke. There was no way that I had just stumbled upon a photography program that didn't care about high school GPAs and community service hours, and actually taught both the technical and business skills necessary to start a career in the photography industry. I submitted a Request Information form and realized after about two dozen persistent phone calls that Hallmark might actually be real. Fast-foward one year and here I am, graduating from the best photography school in the country with a kickass portfolio to help me land a job I didn't even know I could get paid for just one year ago. Hallmark taught me everything I needed to know about commercial photography at an incredibly fast pace, and without cutting corners.
