Hello, my name’s Christopher McTaggart. I’m a graduate student and assistant student researcher at Uppsala University in Sweden, working on my M.Sc. in Digital Media and Society.
I majored in Cinema and Media studies at Carleton College, and minored in Art History, with a focus on architecture, aesthetics, and semiotics.
Outside of my studies I worked as a media relations officer, a teaching assistant, and a darkroom technician at Carleton.
I’ve been fortunate enough to combine my academic interests and my love of photography in both the public and private sector, where I specialize in market analytics, corporate branding, and communications strategies. I am particularly interested in new technologies and how they change these roles, but we’ll see if I’m given the opportunity to explore those topics first hand.
I hope to work in marketing, advertising, or communications after I graduate. I’ve always enjoyed the combination of theory, creativity, and practical application in these positions. I have an eye for good design, I enjoy creative solutions, and I am best motivated by challenging projects.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy my work, my flickr feed is below, and my more curated work is to the left. Thanks for taking the time to check out my website!
