San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 30, 2012
ConnectEd, The California Center for College and Career, recently selected Scott Chernis, a San Francisco professional and freelance photographer, to participate in its “A Day in the Life” video series. ConnectEd is an organization that aims to help high school students prepare for both college and careers, and Chernis is helping it broaden its message by involving himself and his work in this project.
"We had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Bay Area professional photographer Scott Chernis, who will be featured this fall on our ‘Day in the Life’ channel," Tiye Rose Hood of Media Production Team said. "We sat down with Scott to talk about his career beginnings, inspirations, and how his studies have helped him along the way."
By following his passion, developed during his time in New Orleans as a college student, Chernis has built a meaningful career that allows him to work across a diverse range of subject matter as a lifestyle photographer. From black and white images of jazz musicians in New Orleans to working with President Obama in Hawaii, Chernis has created a life and career as a commercial photographer. Through his photography, he hopes to inspire high school students to search for their own career direction and make meaningful career choices.
The episode will feature a behind-the-scenes look at Chernis during the Hilton World Wide brand studio portrait session, as well as an on-camera interview chronicling the ups and downs of his career. The video will provide students with valuable inside information and a glimpse into the life of a professional photographer.
"We appreciate his candid advice for students facing the challenge of foraging their own way in freelance photography. We thank him for sharing his time, knowledge and his beautiful photography!" Hood said.
