Our ASU Now photographers and videographers get the chance to capture amazing moments with faculty, staff, students and the beautiful ASU campuses. Here they share a few of their favorite scenes from 2015.

Charlie Leight, senior photographer

"Since April, I have taken nearly 25,000 pictures for ASU Now. As with any photographer, there were some that were out of focus, others that just missed the peak moment. But some were just right: compelling, moving, fun."

Below are just a few of Charlies's favorite photos from the year. View the full gallery here.

Deanna Dent, photographer

"Every day I consider myself lucky enough to document the experience of those learning and educating at one of the nation's most innovative universities. Every story assignment brings a unique opportunity to relate visually to our readers."

Below are just a few of Deanna's favorite photos from the year. View the full gallery here.

Steve Turkovich: A letterman who helped build this house

"Steve Turkovich has been a Sun Devil season ticket holder since 1965 and is an alumnus of ASU and a four-year veteran of the Sun Devil football team under famed Coach Frank Kush. Upon meeting 'Turk,' you know that you are meeting a kind, loyal family man. He loves his family and his Sun Devils."

Operation Inferno: Army ROTC and Public Service Academy training

"Every kid dreams of being G.I. Joe at one time in his or her life, and I had the opportunity to document what ROTC training is like this past October."
