MC perspective: Teachers get to play too!

MC 2 Don White

WARNING!  This is going to be another one of those posts that makes you want our job!

MC2 White is a photography instructor for the Basic Mass Communication Specialist Course at the Defense Information School.  He spends most of his time grading, not producing.  Every once in while he gets to pick up a camera and do some shooting.


WHITE: I was fortunate enough to be offered a ride along with the Leap Frogs when they came to Baltimore to perform a jump during the Orioles/Yankees series. It was a great experience, just being able to get back out and shoot again. Especially the photos I was able to take from the back of the C-130.

 I love aerial photography, so I jump at any opportunity to fly.

Being an instructor, you always want to show the students your work. However, after a few months, it becomes old. 

 "You need fresh material to let them know you still have it."

I like to take jobs outside of DINFOS to help keep my imagery fresh for my students.


I AM YOUR EYES: Thanks MC2! 

If you're not familiar with them, check out the Leap Frogs here

"The United States Navy Parachute Team, commonly known as the Leap Frogs, is the parachute demonstration team of the United States Navy. It consists of an all volunteer team of active-duty personnel drawn from Naval Special Warfare (NSW), including Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen (SWCC) and support personnel."

They better not be talking to Yankees fans.
