Chris LaPointe ‘10
The diversity of classes I took while attending RPI as an EMAC student allowed me to discover my ideal career path. Each class that I took gave me a different perspective and skill set to utilize outside of the classroom. The EMAC program made me a more well-rounded student, which then gave me more options on the career paths that I could choose.
I am currently working in NYC as a freelance photographer and photo assistant/digital technician. My career path started out VERY wide and then slowly narrowed down. As a freelancer, I work in a variety of different worlds and hold many different "positions." I love my job!
In just one week I worked as:
- photo assistant for a Maxim magazine photo shoot
- digital tech for Saks Fifth Avenue on model shoots
- photo re-touch technician for a baby toy company (Skip Hop)
- photographer for two high-end weddings
- assistant for a commercial still life photographer
- freelance graphic designer for Sept. issue of Forum magazine (my third cover for Forum)
I also do my own photo shoots to expand my business.
