Jaein Kim, Director of Photography

Jaein Kim is the Director of Photography this year on the Portola Pilot. She is extremely passionate about visual media ranging from digital art to videography to photography. Outside the newspaper classroom, you can find her on the competitions mats or by the sidelines leading the cheer team, or at Trader Joe’s which she considers her second home. If you ever need a photographer or simply want to talk about Everything-But-The-Bagel Seasoning or Cauliflower Gnocchi, she’s the one to look for.
