A Passion for Photos
Penn State junior Sidney Tep fell in love with photography in high school when he saw a friend of his playing around with a dated digital camera. Tep decided to join the fun after asking his mother to buy him a camera and soon realized he enjoyed taking photos. After displaying his work on Facebook and other forms of social media, he began receiving requests from friends, family and strangers asking to have their photos taken. Tep now has regular bookings for weddings, graduations and birthday parties. Although he is working toward a degree in health policy administration, he realizes that his love of photography may overshadow a future in this field. Tep plans on going full-time with his photography once he graduates and will only use his degree in HPA to fund his passion for photos.
