Student Marley Bramsway documents her inspiring photo experience in New York City

My day spent in New York was one to remember.

Earlier this month, a few of my classmates from DelVal’s media program and I carpooled to the Hamilton Train Station in New Jersey and were on our way to New York City. We stepped off the train and made our way through the Big Apple to the Javits Center.

The building was like a clear glass window and just up the stairs was a room full of world-class speakers, live models, media industry-leading brands, and photo walks and camera museums. My Delaware Valley University classmates and I did a lap around the venue to take everything in. We walked past vender after vender, model after model, and stumbled upon a Canon game show photo op.

Within the retro walls and polaroid color scheme were real contestants behind podiums rushing to hit their buzzers to take 400 points off the board. After some time we began visiting the different studios, each with a different image to capture.

I wanted to capture the sorrow within the girl behind the window, the movement in the white dress, the mystery behind the girl in the retro room, and the confident edge of the sequenced jacket. After taking photographs of all the models, I made my way to Dixie Dixons presentation.

A Dallas-based photographer and director Dixie Dixon specializes in fashion, lifestyle, and commercial advertising. She is my favorite fashion photographer and embodies the style of motion and encompasses passion, realism, and an idealistic outlook. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to pursue my passion and listen to those who I look up to and aspire to achieve the same accomplishments as them.

The Bild Festival is a new and very special event that celebrates the creation of image, video, and audio. During Bild, students had the opportunity to experience immersive hands-on workshops, learn from world-class speakers, discover the latest innovations from industry-leading brands, and get inspired by a the national creators community.
