Just like any other school, Collective Gallery enjoyed field trips out in the city over the summer. One of the most exciting trips was an Atlanta United FC soccer game. The students had no idea where they were heading on the ride there; they were only told to bring their cameras and be ready to work. Several students had never attended a soccer game before, let alone shoot the scene from the field! One of our students, Albert Palathinkal, shared that he wasn’t really into soccer before, but now he’s a life-long fan. The highlight of the day was when super star producer Metro Boomin took to the field to strike the Golden Spike. Not only did the students get to take pictures of the epic moment, they also got the chance to meet Metro in his VIP suite. The overall experience to shoot the players, fans, and legends right from the field was exhilarating. The students did an exceptional job capturing the event and were invited back to shoot the open house training at the brand new Mercedes Benz Stadium. Atlanta United players even reposted some of the photos our students snapped on social media.
