Meet the Media Staff


Jose Cueva – Department Head

Hi, I’m Jose Cueva. I’m from Guadalajara, Mexico and I have been practicing media for 6 years. This will be my second summer at Camp and I will be Department Head of Media. I couldn’t be more excited about coming back to the magic world we call Camp Vega.  Our goal in the Media department is to showcase all the great summer memories we make and how amazing camp is.




Connor Bartek – Department Head

Hey everybody! I’m Connor and I’m excited for my first year at Camp Vega!  This will be my 8th season working at a summer camp. Previously I was a high school instructor and now I am pursuing a path in the video production industry. I’m an avid outdoors enthusiast and enjoy mountain biking and water skiing. I can’t wait to meet you all and am looking forward to my first summer in Maine.





Aoife Commons – Department Head

My name is Aoife (E-fa) Commons, I’m from Ireland 🇮🇪 and this will be my second year working at Camp Vega! I am currently in my final year in college studying Theatre & Drama. Last year working in Digital Media I found a love of teaching videography and photography at Vega. I can’t believe how lucky and happy I am to be back here once again! Can’t wait to meet you all soon! This summer is gonna be epic! 




Hello everybody, my name is Ben and I’m so excited for my first year at Camp Vega! I’m from the UK and I’m currently in my final year of university studying Photography, I’m thrilled to be working alongside the media team and learning new skills.  I can’t wait to meet you all!






I’m Mariela Ortiz, I’m 23 years old and the photography is one of my favorite hobbies. I like to travel and meet new people and cultures. I am so happy to be able to live the Camp Vega experience this summer with the girls and to be able to remember my childhood in summer camps with my cousins. I would love to be able to feel in photos memories of what girls live in the best summer of their lives.  Can’t wait for it!




Hey everyone! I’m Hunter and I’m excited to work in the Media department this summer! I was a Vega camper for seven summers so I’m thrilled to spend my 8th summer at Vega as a counselor. I’m 19 years old and studying Film Studies at Chapman University. When I’m not studying, I love to go thrift shopping and see my favorite artists in concert with friends. I’m looking forward to an amazing summer with all of you!
