Chris Cecere is the Sports Photography instructor here in the Photography and Digital Arts Department.
How long have you been an instructor here?
What would you consider to be the most important thing for students to do in order to reach their full potential in your class?
Understanding that one can still cover sporting events, even if you do not have expensive equipment. Keeping this in mind allows the student to learn skills to compensate for not having the latest and greatest camera or lens.
What do you hope students take away from your class?
Trying something new from the class or outside of their normal positioning/angles on the sidelines will give them a new perspective on how they plan to shoot a game.
What are some benefits of taking a summer session class?
By taking a summer class, we are not limited to indoor events. Also baseball and soccer are the key sports during the summer.
Do you have a catchphrase? If not, what would you make it? Why?
I like to say “cool story bro” a lot. Usually as a joke when someone won’t stop talking.
If you had a superpower what would it be?
I don’t think you could beat the ability to fly. Never having to deal with the airport shenanigans again would be fantastic.
