Meet Amber. Amber has been one of our front office interns at Amherst Media for about a year and a half now. I have to say, she really whipped our front office into shape too. Amber just wrapped up her final semester at Hampshire College and is now leaving us to continue her post-college journey. Before she left, she asked me to take a few head shots for her LinkedIn profile and, having just purchased a new 70-200 to replace my older lens, I was more than happy to oblige. The above photo is from a little farewell gathering that we had for her last week.
For those who don’t know, Amherst Media is located in the old WMECO power building on College Street in Amherst. We occupy the first floor, but the upper floors are pretty much empty. There are some pretty cool spots upstairs that I’ve always thought would make for a) great photo shoot locations and b) a fantastic horror film setting. We weren’t exactly shooting a horror film, but a couple of the rooms made great locations for our shoot. Here are a few of the shots we got.
