Bobby Model Photojournalism Professorship

In 2019, the Bobby Model Photojournalism Professorship and Bobby Model Excellence Fund in Photojournalism were created. They were established within the Communication and Journalism Department at the University of Wyoming by Bobby's father, Bob Model, to honor his son who passed away tragically in 2009. Starting in Fall 2021, the first Model professor in UW history, Shane Epping, taught students the art of photography, photojournalism, and skills within visual communication. Among other things, students may embark on unbelievable adventures all while capturing moments through a lens.

For further questions regarding the Model Professorship, please contact Shane Epping at or Dr. Cindy Price Schultz at
