Champion staff photographers wrap up the year with their favorite shots of the year
Allison Heise, Assistant Photo Editor
During my year at the Champion, I learned what the phrase “if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life” meant. I had the opportunity to grow and take risks as a photographer surrounded by people that supported and loved me well. I could not have imagined a better place to spend my senior year. I am so very thankful.
Ryan Klinker, Photo Editor
In just the one year that I’ve been a Champion staff member, I have been afforded so many fantastic opportunities. I got to stand courtside for the best men’s basketball team in program history, y on a private jet and cover a nationally televised event, stand in the freezing cold for a road football game at UVA and photograph the First Lady. Despite all of the stress and time spent in the windowless photo office, I’ve loved my job.
