Paige Provost | The Feather Online

Provost shares one of her favorite pictures she has taken throughout her time involved with The Feather.

My journey with The Feather first began at the end of the 2017-18 school year. Seeing all the photojournalists involved with The Feather all throughout my first year in high school always interested me.

Feather advisers, Kori Friesen and Greg Stobbe, held a meeting for students who are interested in joining the team for the upcoming school year. Junior at the time, Kaylie Clem, encouraged me to attend the meeting since I was showing interest in joining the photojournalism team. The next year I decided to join the class.

This team is just like a sports team, there are many strong individuals but each of us offers something unique to the team.

I’ve not only gained photography skills, I have learned to write and attain the ability to act in a professional manner regardless of the circumstances.

The progression of my photographing ability started when first learning to manually shoot a DSLR camera. First learning the settings and understanding how to control light was overwhelming at first but soon began to come naturally after lots of practice. I can now confidently go into any light situation and leave the event with quality pictures.

As I reflect on the past two years that I have been involved in The Feather I am grateful for all the opportunities, growth and knowledge I have gained with being a part of this team.
