Jill Person '03 Art and Psychology
I chose Salem State for the photography program in '98 as I felt it had the most to offer in terms of commercial, portraiture and best options for the “real world”. I graduated in 2003 with a BA in art (photography
concentration) and a psychology minor.
Before graduating I began working at a local camera shop for a couple of years where I had the opportunity to train with some of the best in Canon, Nikon, Epson experts and more.
In 2004, along with my business partner, the two of us opened a high-end wedding and event photography company that has been located on Newbury Street in Boston since 2005 and in Newport Rhode Island since 2009. I have had the pleasure of working at Boston’s most elite hotels, and have traveled everywhere from New York to Paris, France, to photograph weddings and am always looking forward to what lies ahead.
The four years I lived at and attended Salem State were undoubtedly life changing. I met so many lifelong friends, gained the skills and confidence to be where I am today and am so proud to call SSC (SSU) my alma mater.
