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 President’s Office, the Provost’s Office, the Office of Advancement, the Alumni Association, the Muscarelle Museum of Art, the School of Education, the School of Business, the School of Arts & Sciences, Creative Services, Historic Campus, Swem Library, the 50th Legacy, the Society of 1918, among others. In addition to William & Mary, I also provide photography-related services to the Medical College of Virginia, VCU, the Richmond Times-Dispatch, and numerous other commercial and editorial clients, be they small businesses, large corporations, or private foundations.

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

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.).
