commercial photography and film. i sometimes write.

To be honest, I’m not too familiar with Polaroids, and for some of the “higher end” Polaroids, you might have to buy film via the Impossible Project. In the end, it’s pretty expensive, and I honestly am not sure how worth it is (similar results with VSCO and other film emulation platforms). 

If you really do want the instant look, I think fuji has a few good options. 


I think it’s a great starter camera if you go Nikon. If you go Canon, check out the T3i/T4i/T5i. 

Either way, I recommend getting a prime lens instead of the kit lens. The kits aren’t the best, and you’ll outgrow it quickly. 


Hi Alisha. Thanks for the follow + checking out my work. 

Penn definitely does have a lot to offer, even if you aren’t majoring in photography (which I am not). Since there are so many clubs and frats/sororities, there are a lot of opportunities for smaller paid gigs. You could also get involved in the many magazines at Penn (or the Daily Pennsylvanian, the newspaper). I recommend checking out The Walk Magazine and Penn Appetit which are two of the better magazines for photography. 

Also, if you’re looking for more info on photo opportunities a shameless plug, here’s an interview I did with The Walk:

Good luck.
