Photo Editor: David Downs


David Downs got his first camera in 2004, and photography soon became his hobby. After transferring to USF in spring 2008, he worked as an intern photographer for The Oracle.

In fall 2009, he became staff photographer, covering a number of events ranging from Big East conference championships to student government scandals. David’s first professional photography experience came in 2005, when he worked for Hillsborough Community College’s publication, Galleria, where his first assignment was to take shots of an immigration protest.
