ROTC: Student to Soldier – by Grant Hindsley

Grant Hindsley just finished his freshman year at the University of Missouri and worked on a project on the Mizzou ROTC for his Fundamentals of Photojournalism class.

This project was definitely not planned out and then approached, it sort of came to me through a series of events.

First, I had an assignment through The Maneater, a student-run newspaper at the University of Missouri. I was supposed to go photograph ROTC doing their Physical Training exercises before classes at sunrise. I went out at about 4:30am and went out and shot the assignment.

Through shooting this first assignment, I connected with one of the more senior members of ROTC and  later set up a shoot to photograph an environmental portrait assignment for my ‘Fundamentals of Photojournalism’ class taught by David Rees.

    I can’t seem to comment directly on Grant’s site, but I just wanted to say thanks for making the audio so clean! It really makes the project stand out. There’s nothing worse than spending time with a slideshow with messy audio. I also use Garageband for detailed audio work, and it makes all the difference. Congrats on the project.

  2. Thanks Erin! Im working on my site right now, it hasn’t been working all too well this morning. Hopefully I will have a way to comment soon!
