Cellist Patrick Hopkins on Alaska Live

Alaska, Music, Photography, Portraits

I recently wrapped up my professional media internship for my undergraduate degree at UAF. I couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity then working with Lori Neufeld and KUAC. I got to help with the live-radio program Alaska Live, be an on-air host for all the fantastic NPR shows, and even host my own music programs. My audio skill set has grown dramatically.

One of the last projects I worked on was an Alaska Live with Fairbanks-raised cellist Patrick Hopkins, who recently graduated from Juilliard Music School. Check out the podcast with music and conversation on KUAC’s website.

One of my favorite music images came form this shoot. It has more layers then a standard shot, and includes my work station.

Recording levels, wavelengths and board lights in the foreground, cello playing in the background.
