About Our Program: Capturing a Moment with Rebecca Scoggin McEntee
Rebecca Scoggin McEntee has taught photojournalism, photography, and journalism, most recently at South Dakota State University.
Before returning to the University of Texas, where she received a Ph.D. in Journalism in 2015, Rebecca was a photo editor for six years, and staff photographer for fourteen years, at the Austin American Statesman. Prior to working at the Statesman, Rebecca’s career included photography, videography, writing, editing, and television news reporting with a variety of media that included journalism, public relations, and advertising. She was a photographer with the Texas House of Representatives, and produced promotional video projects for the Texas State Health Department programs. Rebecca also enjoyed producing a cartoon strip for a few years that ran in the Round Rock Leader and a few other newspapers. Rebecca’s research has focused on the use of photographs for journalism and strategic communications, with a major emphasis on the editing of war imagery.
Dues for 2017 are $12.
New members joining after the first of the year will pay a prorated amount. You may pay by check at the next meeting or mail to our treasurer, Winifred Simon, at 600 Red Hawk Road, Wimberley, TX 78676, or pay using PayPal.
You may submit up to 2 images. Please resize them to 2,000 pixels on the long side, with a resolution of 72, and name them 1FirstName_LastName.jpg, 2FirstName_LastName.jpg. Remember, when showing your images, you may ask for a critique or suggestions for improvement from members, or simply “show and tell” your image.
