So I’m in robotics, and yet I don’t really touch the robot. I don’t even really build anything involving the robot. I guess you could say the robot isn’t even part of my job description. You see, I’m a photographer for the team. The only time I deal with the robot is behind the lens or on the editing screen. My main job is to document every single part of the team in an entertaining but informative way. It’s certainly a busy job. Every week me and my photographer buddies make a weekly update video, showing off all of the important things that our team accomplished for that week of build season. Since this is my first year in robotics, I’ve gotten to learn and experiment with different ways of presenting media.
But I am not always sitting in a chair. If something important involving the team is happening, I’m there. My primary goal is to present every little thing our team does, experiences, and accomplishes. To do that, I have to be there before the action even starts. So as you can imagine, I get to run a bit. I love doing it though, as it lets me be creative and view everything from an interesting perspective all the time. Seeing things from an artistic view is one of the best parts of my job. Oh, and I also enjoy the editing.
That’s right, I edit. That’s the final stop before my content gets seen by the internet. Recently, I made a really special intro for our videos. To see it, you’ll have to wait until our robot reveal video later in the season. I promise you, it is pretty cool. The feel of it is a good match for our entire team, and I really enjoyed creating it. Keep an eye out for it and all the photos my team captures. We’re making history here people.
