City Beat Cover Photo Shot by AAC Senior, Catherine Viox


Catherine Viox, Senior Photography major at the AAC, has been interning at City Beat for quite some time.  Just last week she was given the opportunity to shoot the cover photo for the December 11th edition and jumped at the chance!  Here is Catherine’s reaction to the shoot:

“It’s amazing walking around the city and seeing my photo on a publication that is literally everywhere. I got to shoot my amazing boss, Jesse, reading in the snow surrounded by stacks of books. It was a fun and creative shoot and so nice to make the cover photo.  It really put into perspective how much work Jesse has to do every week to keep the magazine coming out as it should. As their head photographer, she has a lot of pressure on her shoulders. I hope within a few years I’ll be in her seat as she moves to bigger and better things.”

Congratulations, Catherine, on a job well done!
