Through a photography internship with the local Little League, Alex Walworth, Pasco County HSHT participant was invited to photograph a Tampa Bay Rays vs. Miami Marlins game at Tropicana Field. Alex absorbed every tip shared from Skip Milos, official Tampa Bay Rays photographer.
“Skip gave me great instruction on camera resolution, light utilization, and shooting angles,” said Alex. “I couldn’t believe I was right next to my favorite Rays players, taking pictures, living a dream.” Walworth worked side-by-side for nine innings with the team, which included media photographers and videographers.
“The memories are so amazing, that every time I close my eyes I see myself at Tropicana Field shooting a game from the press credential area,” remarked Alex. “It was such a memorable night and an experience I can’t put it into words. My goal now is to take this experience and make it my career.”
“Skip was wonderful to work with,” said Miranda Ray, Program Director, HSHT. “This real-time workplace exposure and experience is something Alex will never forget.”
