Hallie Fox - A little bit about me

My name is Hallie Fox.  I am the photographer in residence at Save the Harbor/ Save the Bay this summer, and I am truly excited to begin my first summer here.

I am a rising senior at the Buckingham Browne and Nichols school in Cambridge. Here, I have taken photography classes for the past four years. I work with both film and digital cameras and my photographs range from landscapes to portraiture. I am so excited to use all that I have learned about photography at Save the Harbor this summer.

 During the school year, I also volunteer at the Boys and Girl Clubs and the Somerville Public School System’s after school program.  So, I love spending time with kids and can’t wait to be involved in the Save the Harbor summer program.

I have spent my entire life around the ocean. My dad was an officer in the Navy, and he spent countless hours by the sea teaching me how to fish and kayak, how to find crabs on the jetties, and how to read the current. For eight years growing up I lived on Plum Island, where I spent my time building drift wood forts and exploring tidal pools. My love for the island prompted me to spend a semester doing an independent study on the causes and variations of beach erosion. I also spent my summers on Cape Code and the shores of Revere beach, where some of my best childhood memories were made.  I have also grown up attending many Save the Harbor events such as the Revere Beach Sand Sculpting Festival and the Cupid Splash, and I am excited to finally be a part of those events myself.

I am so excited to be working at Save the Harbor, in a way, combining many of the things I love most in life. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this organization, and I am eager capture all the amazing things that go on at Save the Harbor

I can’t wait to document all the summer fun!
