MoAfter New Roots, Mo Petkov, took a gap year to network around his passion, photography. Mo specializes in Equestrian Sports and Polo, and has shot events and games for Cornell Polo, as the first round of the 112th U.S Open of Polo. To further expand on his passion Mo is studying photography at the Community College of Santa Fe, as well as Marketing at Colorado State University, where he will complete his education with a Bachelor’s Degree.

Mo remembers his New Roots experience fondly, “New Roots helped me to adapt my work to my passion. On top of that, I taught a class under Maria Gimma which opened up the world of cameras to me. I would like to extend a special thanks to her.” Mo’s definition of success is, “Following your dreams, making goals, and smashing them! I told myself last year I would be hired to shoot at the International Polo Club, it happened.”
