University photographer Danny Meyer celebrated his career change with the Communications and Marketing department.

   After nearly half a decade serving as University Photographer at ASU, Danny Meyer left the position last week to begin the next chapter in his career.
 Meyer will be working as a freelance photographer, furthering his life long passion of taking photographs. 
   Meyer began working for the Office of Communications and Marketing in the fall of 2007 and has since graced the majority of ASU’s publications with his photographs. “I worked with Danny for nearly five years and during that time he took some amazing photos,” said Gabrielle Miller, Office of Communications and Marketing Graphic Artist and Web Designer. “He especially has a great eye for nature and sports photos.” 
   At eight-years-old Meyer was given his first camera. He took pictures throughout his  childhood but never thought about making his beloved hobby a career. Meyer took multiple career aptitude tests during high school and his young adult life that unanimously resulted in photographer. Meyer eventually decided to pursue a photography career and attend the Ohio Institute of Photography and Technology after finding himself dissatisfied with his job at the time.“We have had many opportunities to work together and he is such a reliable guy,” said Lorina Soza, Multicultural Program assistant. “He has such a unique eye for photos and even gifted some of his personal photographs to the Multicultural Center.”
   Meyer has had countless photos featured on the ASU website, in the ASU Magazine and in university brochures and newsletters.  He has also added numerous ADDY Awards from the American Advertising Federation of San Angelo to the university’s trophy case. “I really enjoy shooting athletics,” Meyer said. “Two basketball seasons ago was a really exciting time for ASU and was so much fun to follow and photograph.” Meyer’s coworkers said he brought a vivacious light to photography as well as to the work environment. “I’m really going to miss his stories,” Miller said. “He has led a very adventurous life.” Meyer will be moving to Sonora where he said he will be supporting his wife, ASU alumnus Kimberley Meyer, in her career change as the new Editor-in-Chief of the Sonor newspaper.
   Meyer said he enjoys photographing large products like cars and farm equipment and wants to continue that kind of work. “I’m really going to miss all the great friends I’ve made while working here,” Meyer said. “I’ve really enjoyed my time here and I really just want to thank everyone who has made this job worth doing.”
