George Mullinix, the art of science

George Mullinix has been called one of the best #exploreKU contributors ever, and makes a career shooting footage for commercial clients around the world. But can you guess what KU degree the artist behind this photo has?

Photography? Nope. Sports journalism? Wrong again. George actually graduated from the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences with a degree in ecology and evolutionary biology. And if you hop on over to George’s site you’ll see how he blends a passion for nature with his artistic career. Here’s a sample of his work:

Goes to show that the sciences and the arts complement each other perfectly!

In March 2017, George took over our Instagram account for a few days as he shot a new commercial at KU and in KC forĀ popular clothing company Charlie Hustle. Here’s George’s story:

HEY THERE, JAYHAWKS! I'M GEORGE MULLINIX. I graduated from the College of Liberal Arts & Science in Spring of 2014 with a degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Now, I'm a cinematographer and photographer based out of Kansas City.


I'M EXTREMELY LUCKY TO GET TO DO WHAT I LOVE EACH AND EVERY DAY. "Since graduating, I've been extremely fortunate to shoot for editorial and commercial clients around the world. Rock Chalk, Jayhawk!"
