“Photography is a hobby that makes all your other hobbies more fun,” says Bryson R. Tibbitts (BS ’21), who received an honorable mention in the 2020–21 Dean of Students Photo Contest for his shot of students playing Spikeball at Utah’s Antelope Island.

Tibbitts developed an interest in photography during high school; in college he taught himself composition and design with a professional camera. Tibbitts practiced these skills by teaching photography to troubled teens at a youth treatment center.

The contest received more than 750 submissions from BYU students. The 30 winning photographs were announced in March and will be displayed in the Wilkinson Student Center throughout the upcoming school year.
