Well hello there! My name is Chris McNamara and I’m an aspiring media professional with both strengths and experience in Photography and Videography/Cinematography. I specialize in close up shooting and work surrounding social media and promotional settings, but I am always hungry to learn new skills and am quick to adapt to new work environments and challenges.
I recently completed my education with a degree in journalism from the Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. While my focus in professional interests has always been to be as multi-faceted and versatile as possible, I tailored my education to digital media production with courses surrounding digital story-telling, media production/editing, branding and design.
I pride myself on strong communication skills, a balance of logical and creative problem solving, my ability as an avid writer and ambitious attitude toward new opportunities to expand my skill set. I have applied my professional interests as a field marketing specialist for the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, Serengetee Clothing LLC, and the Minnesota Daily newspaper in recent years and am currently open to finding new work in a variety of settings related to social media, marketing & promotion, and publications; as well as freelance portraiture and commercial outlets.
