Drew Geraci

District 7 Media

Andrew has always had a fascination with the presentation of different media formats. At a young age, he learned HTML and graphic design by observing and building upon other designers work. His interest in graphic design eventually opened the door to photography and videography.

Looking for an adventure, Andrew ended up joining the Navy in 2003 as a Photographer's Mate. He honed his photography / videography skills and ended up being selected for the Motion Media Program at Syracuse University in 2006. He's an award winning graphic artist, animator, videographer and television producer. Over the years Andrew has worked with many talented photographers, journalists and videographers -- gaining and sharing his knowledge along the way. Currently, I'm a multimedia producer for the Washington Times, in Washington DC. I've been a photographer and videographer for more than 12 years — I love it and can't get enough!

Garrett Hubbard

Garrett Hubbard Studios

Garrett Hubbard is a visual storyteller because he believes in the power of authentic stories. He utilizes both video and still photography to connect his clients with their audience. Garrett believes that visual storytelling is the language that saturates our reality, and that stories revealing truth can change lives.

Garrett learned from some of the best storytellers out there—journalists. He has spent the past four years cultivating a documentary and narrative driven video style mixed with an artful photographic vision at USA TODAY. This work has taken him to the White House, the Olympics, The Royal Wedding, and many other places around the world. Prior to joining the USA TODAY staff, he had the opportunity to tell stories for The Washington Post and The New York Times.

His work has been honored by some of the most prestigious awards in journalism including the National Press Photographers Association and White House News Photographers Association. These awards have landed him in the Oval Office twice to shake the President’s hand (Garrett opted instead for a fist bump and a high-five). These awards have given him a platform to speak around the country to teach others about the art of visual storytelling.

In 2009 he entered into the year long Military Motion Media program at Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communication.
