A scene from last night's class.

Congrats to my student, Lauren Crabbe, on getting her photos published (and featured on the home page) of SFGate.com. It’s a direct result of her jumping on an opportunity mentioned during my class last week. The gallery of 57(!) images of 49er fans attracted about 46,000 page views and was one of the most popular features on the site on Tuesday.



During last night’s class, Lauren mentioned how receptive the tailgaters were when she mentioned she was shooting for SFGate. She also said she shot about 500 photos, which puts the size of the published gallery into some perspective.

Opportunity knocked, and she kicked down the door. That’s the kind of response that will serve any journalist well.

Other opportunities

The Online News Association conference is coming to SF Oct. 1-3. Volunteers can attend for free (networking is free, too!). If interested, students should contact Yumi (ywilson(at)sfsu.edu).

Meanwhile, Salon is looking for interns. Those interested should check it out and then contact Yumi ASAP. Also, there are intern opportunities at KQED radioTikkun magazine, the Nation Institute, the Public Press and the Associated Press.
