This year, Rodney won two students awards at Berea College, awards that celebrate promising students in the arts.
During the summer, he seized the opportunity to intern at Harper College as a CASE intern. During the internship, he worked on multiple projects ranging from headshot photography to promotional video.
A little about the end of his internship, he started submitting his photos to the National Geographic. Within the first two days of submitting his first work, his photo earns the fourth place on "Playing with Light" assignment. Before getting his work on National Geographic, he submitted one of his movies on IMDb.
