This is part of a new policy implemented by Ithaca College president Tom Rochon. All student media must contact Maley to set up interviews with upper level faculty and administrators. The campus community has responded very strongly to this new policy, including a letter urging repeal from about 70 faculty members as of Friday, Oct. 5, 2012.

I would like to introduce a new type of portrait posting for the website. It will be a “street portrait.” Basically it will be simple photographs just arranged on the spot and that happen to catch my eye. Here is the first one.

Recently I shot photos of Megan Musnicki, a Olympic gold medalist who graduated from Ithaca College, for The Ithacan. Along with Matt Kelly, sports editor for the paper, we were able to set up some great shots. But, interestingly enough this practice shot of Matt deserves some attention.
