Meet Allie

Allison Jarrell

Aspiring photojournalist with an emphasis on the environment

Allison loves nature photography and aspires to be a photojournalist. Some of her photography can be found here.

“Nothing against people or buildings, but trying to capture the essence of wildlife in its natural habitat is a truly breathtaking experience.”

Allison says the wilderness class seems to good to be true.

“A course that combines nature, camping, and writing seemed too good to be true! I haven’t camped very much, only a few times this past summer. Cooking over a fire campfire and canoeing were a couple of my favorite highlights. Falling asleep to a symphony of insect harmonies is definitely something I could get used to!”
