One might train as an athlete a lot like Maddie Meyer has been training as a sports photographer: at the heart of both are hours and hours of tried-and-true practice, fueled by a fierce love for the game. Smartly, ever since beginning her studies in Ohio University’s visual communications program toward a bachelor of science in photojournalism, Meyer has also been cross-training by diligently pursuing photojournalism internships and attending workshops, including the acclaimed Eddie Adams Workshop in October 2013.

Learning by doing often trumps classroom study and bookish
pursuits as a worthy educational approach. Add top-notch instructors, an
inspiring setting, an open-ended schedule and easy access to materials
to the mix, and you have all the elements provided by the schools
featured here. What’s more, these laboratories of learning are readily
accessible to a wide range of pupils, from current students and recent
grads to career changers and avocational enthusiasts. In “Total
Immersion,” we investigate three distinctive communities in which to
study photography, new media, career training and/or craftsmanship—each
one offering students an intensity of purpose and incisive vision that
regular academic programs can lack.

Utah’s biggest city and state capital, Salt Lake City (SLC), is situated in a valley surrounded by mountains—making it an outdoor photographer’s paradise. It’s a mecca for outdoor sport enthusiasts as well, especially skiers. Founded in 1847 by Brigham Young, by the mid-1800s SLC was nicknamed
the Crossroads of the West,
due to its proximity to the first transcontinental railroad. In 1913,
SLC was traversed by the first transcontinental highway and, presently,
its locus as hub for the cross-country freeways I-15 and I-80, makes SLC
easily accessible to all.

Jessamyn Lovell’s power as an educator is partly due to the fact that she teaches what she actually practices. Winner of CENTER’s 2013 Excellence in Teaching Award, Lovell says her passion for photography stems from its ability to blur lines between fact and fiction, “to explore in-between truth and tell different versions of the same story.”
