What is Smugmug?

Smugmug is a 'fundraiser' for Aquin and a huge resource for Aquin. Aquin pays to have the site, and receives proceeds from each sale. Aquin students and staff use photos from Smugmug for the yearbook, marketing, historical reference, student and adviser projects, and much, much more.

All photos within Aquin's Smugmug site are copyright protected. Any use of these photos--without Aquin's consent--is strictly prohibited. This means that if you use Aquin's photos in social media with the Aquin watermark over them, you are violating the law--and the technology user agreement signed by Aquin students and parents. Please respect this and don't make us enforce it.

'Help Wanted'

The photos in Aquin's Smugmug site have all been taken by our entirely volunteer staff of photographers--mostly Joanne Chang, Laura Diemer and Linda Stykel (the master)--with a few other contributors here and there. Aquin does not pay anyone to take the photos. Everyone who contributes does it to preserve the history of Aquin, to promote Aquin and to raise funds for Aquin.

As announced at the 5-8th grade sports banquet on Wednesday, our volunteer staff is nearing the end of their run as Aquin parents. Joanne and Linda will both 'graduate' in 2015. Laura has another 4 years, but has 'graduated' from the elementary and junior high levels.

So . . . we are looking for some new photographers to start out at the elementary level as these 3 photographers did back in 2006. We know that there are many of you who have the 'photography bug'. This is a great way to satisfy that creative urge. Don't worry if you are just a beginner. Everyone has to start somewhere.

If you are interested, please let us know. We can let you know what is involved and will be there to help you along the way. Call Laura at 815-235-3154 x 226 or email laura.diemer@aquinschools.org.
