MATC Photography Grad Jarob Ortiz Lands Prestigious National Park Service Job Capturing U.S. History
While enrolled in MATC's photography associate degree program, Jarob Ortiz was consumed with photographing the ruins of abandoned steel mills and manufacturing sites using special equipment rarely used these days – a large format view camera. The marriage of skill, passion and ability to use the "Zone System" developed by legendary photographer Ansel Adams led Ortiz to a stunning achievement last summer. He was chosen from a field of nearly 5,000 applicants for a prestigious job as a National Park Service photographer.
