“He enjoys the way a picture can tell the part of a story that words alone cannot, and he strives to get interesting photos from everything he covers.”

Woodworking and riding mountain bikes have been two of Tackett’s favorite activities since high school, and he enjoys both to this day. In high school, Tackett also worked for his school newspaper and yearbook club taking photos. In addition, he took journalism classes.

Tackett has fished for most of his life, learning at a pond on his family’s farm in Ohio as soon as he could hold a rod. Tackett enjoys fishing as often as possible and brings a rod with him wherever he travels.

Tackett began taking photos for The Collegian his first year at Colorado State University. He enjoys the way a picture can tell the part of a story that words alone cannot, and he strives to get interesting photos from everything he covers.

When not taking photos for The Collegian, Tackett takes every chance he can to get into the mountains to take wildlife and landscape photos.

Tackett is excited to work with the new editorial staff and can’t wait to serve the student body while working at The Collegian.
