Student Kudos – October/November 2015

Photography major Megan Authement began an internship with the National Park Service in September where she primarily photographs the Blue Ridge Parkway.  In addition to her internship, Megan has also been working for TCM Real Estate Photography since May 2014.  She also began working as a contributor (after working as a summer intern) for Plough to Pantry, a new magazine by the same publisher as the Laurel of Asheville, and her image will appear on the December 2015 cover.
