How do I know who took the photo?

What is the purpose of offering free images to the public from the events in Lake Placid?

This class is an opportunity for students to be published and also get assignments from professional publications. We want the students to be published in some form — whether it’s digitally, in print or on-air. We know that doing an assignment for a class once a week is different than doing it nearly around the clock for four consecutive days. The Games will help students to push outside their comfort zone in new environments filled with opportunities and challeges.

Who is running the experience for the students?

Seth Gitner, an associate professor in the MND and visual communications departments. MND professor of practice and Newhouse Executive Editor Jon Glass and Jordan Kligerman, a visiting professor in The Newhouse Sports Media Center, are accompanying 22 students on the trip.
Lenny Christopher, a Syracuse University alumnus and professional photographer will be helping out with the Sports Photography workshop.

The trip is funded by the Newhouse School in collaboration with the Newhouse Sports Media Center. In addition, SONY is supporting the venture as a sports photography workshop and providing camera gear, while ThinkTank Photo supplied camera bags.
