My guest today is Alec Hosterman. He is a professor at Longwood University and an avid photographer. Alec was in Charlottesville during the recent attack which resulted in the tragic death of a young woman. He was there on a self assignment to practice his photo documentary skills and shares his experience on the show.
By day, Alec Hosterman is an Assistant Professor of Communication Studies at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. While there, he teaches courses in public relations campaigns, research, writing, and visual communication. But once he puts down the red grading pen, Alec picks up his camera for some well-deserved image therapy! Alec has been behind the lens for over 20 years, shooting anything from nature to landscapes, architecture to street. He also teaches photography courses for a local art studio. Alec lives with one spoiled dog, two vocal cats, and way too many cameras to count.
