About Sarah Tilotta
I'm a photojournalist and event photographer currently based in Athens, OH where I'm pursuing a masters degree in photojournalism at the School of Visual Communication at Ohio University. My projected graduation date is Spring 2014.
While I'm focused on school in Athens, I also have home bases in Chicago, Baltimore, and New York. Please enquire about my availability for editorial assignments and event bookings in those cities and beyond using the "Contact" link at left.
I hold a BA in Visual Arts/Photography from Fordham University - Lincoln Center in New York City. I've also studied photography at Griffith University's Queensland College of Art, in Brisbane, Australia.
While living in Chicago for the past three years I split my time between event photography, community photojournalism for Brown Line Media, and personal projects. I've been actively involved with exhibitions and outreach at the Chicago Photography Center.
Some of my previous experiences include interning at Pace MacGill gallery (NYC), working as a professional photo lab and darkroom technician (Baltimore & NYC), executive assistant at ALM, a legal media publishing company (NYC), college English professor and program director at Guangzhou University in China, and volunteer with the micro-financing NGO, Fonkoze in Haiti.
I love to travel and have ventured around the world to Australia, Belize, Cambodia, Canada, China, France, Haiti, Ireland, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, New Zealand, Philippines, St. Lucia, Thailand, and the UK. I can at least say "hello", "thank you" and "cheers!" in Mandarin, Cantonese, Spanish, Italian, French, and Creole. In addition to traveling and studying languages, I love dogs and babies (although I personally have neither).
