Texas A&M University Distance Learning - Photo Shoot
May 6, 2010 - As the school with the third largest statistics department in the U.S., Texas A&M University has a history and tradition of graduate education in statistics that dates back to 1963. The school has produced over 700 Master's and Ph.D. graduates since its' inception, and now has a goal to aggressively promote the TAMU Distance Learning program. This department has a strong tradition of theoretical and interdisciplinary research with an internationally recognized faculty. In addition to their on location courses, the statistics department now offers an online distance learning program. The online courses provide the same course materials and exams with the flexibility to fit a schedule that may not allow for in-class instruction.
To promote the Distance Learning Program, the TAMU statistics department hired us to create a short video for their web site. We worked with Department Head Dr. Simon Sheather, and Professors Mike Speed and Alan Dabney. Part of the video called for a series of photos from the TAMU campus in Bryan/College Station, Texas. After shooting the primary video, we spent some time around the campus taking some still photos. These were shot with a Panasonic FZ50 at Fine resolution, and edited using ACDsee PhotoManager 3.0. The studio lighting was done with two Lowell Pro mini's (500 watts each) and one Britech 500 watt, 24" x 24" soft box. The video is scheduled for release at the end of May and we will post a link to it at that time.
