The cover story for the Fall 2013 WVU College of Business and Economics Alumni Magazine was about the many rankings that the college has recieved over the previous year. The concept was to have someone represent of each of the categories and hold a sign displaying the ranking. The feel of the photo is that the characters are at sort of a collegiate pep rally.
One of highlights of shooting the magazine for me was meeting and photographing College of B&E alum Robert Reitman in Cleveland, OH. Reitman made his mark as a highly successful lawyer and businessmen in Cleveland and is spending his retirement engaged in philanthropy. Reitman was instrumental in creating the Corporate Social Responsibility course for the College of Business and Economics at WVU. The course teaches the value of philanthropy by giving students a $20,000 budget and evaluating 30 – 50 grant requests from nonprofits and choosing which organizations will receive funding.
