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 Muscarelle Museum of Art, the Office of University Advancement, W&M Creative Services, the Mason School of Business, and the School of Arts & Sciences.

In addition to handling editorial assignments (such as shooting NASCAR for the Richmond Times-Dispatch or covering assignments for the Associated Press), I also handle the photography for large-scale, multi-day events (such as the W&M Homecoming, the Richmond Folk Festival, and the 2nd Street Festival).

I also provide photography services to small businesses, large corporations, private foundations, and other organizations and institutions. (And, even though I don’t advertise myself as a “wedding photographer,” I do shoot weddings!)

It all started in high school when my best friend let me take some shots at a football game. That was all it took to hook me for life; I 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, our two children*, and our rescued dogs and cats.

* only one lives at home; the other one lives currently resides in Yates Hall!
