UPS alumni visit CC305
On Monday, October 12th, Photo Service had the opportunity to meet some alumni who were in the area for another former member’s wedding! In attendence was Julia Xanthos, Danny Avila, and Carlos Avila, among other people. Some of us had the chance to sit down for breakfast with the group and talk about how Photo Service was in the past, what we’re up to now, how they got into the photography field, and even got to see some of their work and have them critique ours.
Here’s a breakdown of who met up with us in the office:
Julia Xanthos – 2000 Torch Editor, now works as a full-time staff photographer for the NY Daily News.
Aris Economopoulos – graduated from RIT but married into the UPS family through Julia! He’s currently a full-time staff photographer at the Newark Star-Ledger.
Danny Avila – 1999 Torch Editor, now works as the full-time chief photographer for NYC Parks Department.
Carlos Alayo – member of Photo Service for both Danny and Julia’s years, he now owns his own studio photography business and works as a freelancer out of NYC.
A big Photo congrats goes out to Heather Rohan who was married this weekend. Heather was the 1997 Torch Editor and is currently the Photo Editor of the Newark Star-Ledger.
