Ricardo Rodriguez-Rivera

Ricardo Rodriguez-Rivera can count himself among about 125 students who work abroad each year.

He spent last summer in Italy, learning the language and taking photos for a seafood restaurant.

Rodriguez-Rivera ’12 (advertising photography) shot photos of the interior and exterior of Soho Restaurant in Genoa and of the food for promotional purposes.

“I learned a lot about the business side of restaurants and how to work with a client.”

His goal now is to become a fashion photographer. After graduation, the native of Puerto Rico moved to New York City to find a job as a photography assistant.
