I was the member of Photo Club and received recommendation to photograph events for International Club first and for Chinese Club later.
The supervisor of both Clubs always email or talk to me in person one or two weeks before the events. This was volunteer activity so I didn't get pay, but I could join the events and had fun with students here.
Students here come from lot of countries around the world, and they have different background. I have to talk with them first before shooting, because some people don't feel comfortable in front the camera.
As a photographer here, I built up my photography skills in every events, and it also brought to me lot of international friends.
The hardest part is sometimes I make mistake and I couldn't re-shoot again because the events only happen once a year. However, I still received good comments from supervisor of both clubs about my images.
