Meet Hannah! She contacted me in April about mentoring her for her photography internship at TCC. As a fellow TCC Digital Media graduate, of course I said “YES!” Here is what Hannah has been up to lately.
Hi! My name is Hannah Troutman and I am a student at Tulsa Community College. I started my education at Central Tech in Drumright, OK in the Graphic Design program. I attended that program from 2008-2010. From there I attended Tulsa Community College where I received my Liberal Arts degree in Spring 2015. I took some time off and decided to go back to get my second associates degree in Spring 2016. What made me go back is that I knew I wanted to do something on the lines of being a photographer and have my own business, so I decided to get an associates degree in Digital Media so I could have the background of the Adobe programs. I am currently in my last semester….woohoo! Doing an internship was my last check off the list to finishing my degree and I knew I wanted to be an intern for a professional photographer. My teacher suggested Emily Mason and everything just fell into place. I love being Emily’s intern. She has a lot of great knowledge that I know will help me start up my own business. I have enjoyed getting her input with my own editing project and shadowing her at her photo sessions. I love photography and I hope that as soon as I finish my degree I will be able start my own business from my hometown.
I am born and raised from a small town called Oilton, Ok. It is located about 50 miles west of Tulsa. I come from a big family and I have always loved being the family photographer. I am the one that you’ll see tons of family pictures uploaded to Facebook! I am married and have four wonderful fur babies. Kratos (dog) who is 5 years old, Riggins (cat) who is 3 years old, Ares (dog) who is 2 years old, and Autumn (dog) who is a year old. They are my pride and joy!
Thank you, Hannah for choosing me to mentor you for your internship. I’m looking forward to a fun semester with you! Looking for photography mentoring? I offer free and paid photography lessons. Contact me for more information about that. I can’t wait to meet you!
