When asked how we can improve the look of our school walls, I knew I wanted to do a project to evoke change and create excitement. Change in our childrens’ view of school, change in their view of their future and change in motivation. I wanted to motivate our kids to realize education and how we perceive our education is how we change our world, change our future. Our children will fill our shoes when we are gone. It’s our job to sow and cultivate their growth. I want to let our students know they can bring success to themselves through hard work and vision.
I worked on this project throughout the summer and will continue to shoot kids throughout the year within various career settings. My next images I’ll work on include Marine Biologist, Zoologist, Veterinarian, Surgeon, US Marine and Police Officer. I’m currently only working with Summerside Elementary students in the West Clermont Local School District as models. If you have any new ideas or connections to shoot current ideas, I’d love to hear from you!

A huge thank you the following organizations who have made these shoots happen: University of Cincinnati Medical Center, Cincinnati Fire Department E19, MadCap Puppetts, University Hospital, Cincinnati Reds (tour guide), RA Jones, University Air Care and Local12 News.
Here’s a sample final wall layout with a close up of the frames we chose for our school, followed by images we’ve taken so far and will hang throughout the school this year.
