Hi, my name is Cole Lowery and welcome to my online portfolio. Below you can read a little about me personally, and above you can use the tabs to browse through some of my experience as a journalist.
As I said above, my name is Cole Lowery; currently I am a Visual Communications major at the University of South Carolina, Columbia. I began my adventure as a journalist my sophomore year of high school and have loved the craft every since. Since then, I've competed both locally and nationally in different journalism competitions tackling subjects ranging from fun human interest pieces to serious news pieces such as coverage on the Walter Scott shooting in Charleston, South Carolina; all while being named the 2016 Journalist of The Year for South Carolina hosted by the South Carolina Journalist Convention (SCSPA). Now in college, I am continuing to learn more as well as gain more experience as a journalist by expanding my skills to other areas with any opportunities that may arise. In the future I plan on taking the multiple languages I am set on learning as well as my photography skills to work for National Geographic as a photo journalist.
