Graduate Spotlight

Luis Tobian Headshot

I have to say that I do not recommend Hallmark, at least not to everyone. I would only do so to the people who are committed and passionate about photography. The experiences at Hallmark have become some of the best moments of my life. To have loved photography for so long, to have struggled for almost 15 years trying to take pictures and finally arriving at a place and in 10 months come out the other side making, not taking pictures is something only Hallmark can offer. It is not easy, although, you the student has to put 100%, like in many things in life you get back what you put in.
