Cypress College photography students were successful entrants in this year’s Orange County Fair contest, a fact noted in an August 8 article authored by Anders Howmann of The Orange County Register.
Cypress College students Cristina Gutierrez and Crystal Worley took first and second place, respectively, in the color portrait photo category. Both have been behind the lens of a camera for most of their lives.
Gutierrez’s winning photograph was taken at an event for Para Los Niños, a Los Angeles-based charity. Cypress College’s Photography Department has a long-standing association with the organization founded to serve children living in poverty.
