About Skip Rowland ’83

more than just a guy with a camera

Skip RowlandI am a full-time freelance photojournalist, regularly covering events and handling projects for the Alumni Association, the President’s Office, the Muscarelle Museum of Art, the Office of University Advancement, W&M Creative Services, the School of Education, and the School of Arts & Sciences, among others.

In addition to handling editorial assignments (such as shooting NASCAR or other editorial assignements for the Richmond Times-Dispatch), I also handle the photography for large-scale, multi-day events (such as the W&M Homecoming and the Richmond Folk Festival).

I also provide photography services to small businesses, large corporations, private foundations, and other organizations and institutions.

Besides corporate and institutional work, I shoot weddings, portraits, and family events – on-campus or wherever you need me.

It all started in high school when my best friend let me take some shots at a football game. I was hooked for life and have been taking photos one way or another ever since. In the past few years, I have earned numerous awards and distinctions, including the Virginia Press Association’s Non-Daily Photographer of the Year.

Born in Richmond, raised in Southside Virginia, educated at William & Mary, I now reside in Hanover County with my wife Nina and our rescued pets (We do get regular visits from our two children when they aren’t working or in school.).
