One of the privileges we have at ACU Today magazine is to work some talented freelance photographers in the process of producing each issue. We do not have an on-staff photographer, so all our work is outsourced to a variety of professionals who live across Texas and around the world.
Austin-area photographer Bill Albrecht is one. He spent nearly two years documenting the work to sculpt and cast and produce Jack Maxwell’s Jacob’s Dream on our campus. Bill traveled to spend time with Jack on campus and at places such as Blue Genie Art Industries in Austin, Deep in the Heart Art Foundry in Bastrop, and Leuders Limestone in Leuders (near Abilene).
Bill provided environmental portraits to us of 2008 Alumnus of the Year Chris Kyker for the Winter 2008 issue, and 2007 Alumnus of the Year Dr. James Womack for the Winter 2007 issue.
You can see some of Bill’s favorite images of the Jacob’s Dream assignment on his Web site at www.albrechtphoto.com and download PDFs of our story in the magazine here.
