On his favorite assignment, Scott “Carly” Rose photographed a swimming pool-sized tank filled with plastic stakes that would soon be covered with oysters. Rose studies photography at Thomas Nelson Community College, and this summer he joined Virginia Sea Grant as a photography intern. During his time with VASG, Rose says he had to learn to be ready for anything, photographing portraits, events, or research cruises on any given day.
“This is an amazing, wonderful place that promotes learning,” Rose says, whose work will be appearing in future VASG documents, magazines, and web articles.
Before coming to Virginia, Rose spent several years in the Navy in Texas. He moved to Virginia three years ago with his wife Katie. In a year, when he graduates from Thomas Nelson, he hopes to return to Texas and dreams of photographing the Houston Astros from the press box in the Minute Maid Stadium.
We wish him all the best and look forward to seeing his photographs in the sports sections of future websites and newspapers!
