nineteenhundredninetyone asked: I'd love it if you guys pick up this blog again =]

We are actually in the process of updating the Photo House tumblr, possibly with Photo of the Week posts, floor events and reblogging popular photography the house is interested in! Thanks for being awesome and patient :)

This years Photo House has been off to a fantastic start! 
This year we introduced Packet. Packet was designed to allow Photo House members a jump start on getting to know each other and the E-board. Members had to acquire signatures and facts from Members, E-board, Alumni, and Advisors.
At the very end, the house had to work together to get a picture of all of them together. 
So check out Photo House’s incoming Freshman kicking off the year! It promises to be a great one!

Success in the Darkroom!

The best way to explain this is to just quote our Darkroom Manager, Emily Barresi:

It is my great pleasure to announce that the darkroom is FINALLY FUNCTIONAL. I mean it this time. I just developed two rolls of black and white film on floor, and they came out great! 

For those who haven’t been following along, the darkroom has been out of commission since the summer due to a leaky wall. When Facilities Management took a look at the damages, Photo House decided it would be a good opportunity to make some renovations.
Now instead of having two cramped darkrooms, we have one full sized (dorm room sized) darkroom. This will fit much better with current usage, which is obviously a lot lower than it used to be. We’re glad we can still say that Photo House has a working darkroom in the residence halls!

The Event to Rule Them All

Photo House’s Executive Board just got back from the Special Interest House Award’s Banquet, where all of the houses met to fight to the death recognize their outstanding achievements.

This year, three awards came our way. The first was given to our ResLife Advisor, Erika Heffernan for Advisor of the Year. Erika started as Photo House’s advisor this year, but you wouldn’t know it by her performance. She absolutely loves helping us with anything we need. Without Erika, we wouldn’t have our newly renovated darkroom.

The second award was given to our Fundraising Chair, Glenn Sweeney. Glenn went above and beyond this year, most notably with the SPAS Holiday Auction, where more than $9000 was raised to be split between Photo House and the Genesee Center for the Arts.

This also led to our third award, Event of the Year. The SPAS Holiday Auction was awarded this title, so congratulations to all of Photo House, and to everyone who helped run it!

Unbelievable!

We just raised over $9,000 to split between the Genesee Center for the Arts & Education and Photo House!

If you’re new to the blog, you’re probably wondering how we managed that – it’s simple really. Photo House ran the annual School of Photographic Arts and Sciences Holiday Auction last Thursday! Basically, Glenn Sweeney (Fundraising Chair) with the help of E-board and the entire PH membership (seriously, we had over 50 volunteers working the event!) organized and ran the entire auction from start to finish.

We had people doing all sorts of jobs, from registering paddles, to handing out pizza, to running items to the stage. The entire auction went off with only a few minor glitches. We can’t thank everyone enough for their support!

While I can’t name everyone who helped out, there are a few people who especially stood out: Bill DuBois came back from retirement to be our auctioneer for one more year (although he said that last year too…). Ken White donated quite a few prints for the silent auction, as well as helped with the matting of the rest of the prints. He also assisted Bill on stage. Christye Sisson was a huge help on stage as well (and who can forget her one-of-a-kind donation: a picture of your own eye!).

I’d also like to mention a few of our donors for their support – after all, it wouldn’t be an auction without donations! The 3rd floor cage was very generous once again this year, giving us tons of old equipment. We also received generous donations from B&H Photo Video and their partners, and Dale Photo & Digital. We’d also like to thank all of the local businesses that made donations. Again, we could not have done this without all of this support!

Now more than ever I can truly say I am proud to be a member of Photo House!
