I started taking pictures when my great grandma gave me a camera for my eighth birthday. I was living in the Midwest, and I took pictures of people's legs, the lawn, and cracked sidewalks on hot humid days. I loved taking pictures from the first shot, but realized quickly that seeing something worth seeing, and taking a picture of it are two very different things. So began my obsession with cameras, and with improving my images.
I studied photography in middle school, high school and then focused on cinematography in college. While I love shooting film and video, I always come back to photography. Editorial photography, lifestyle photography, photojournalism, portraits, fine arts photography, commercial work... I love it all, and I love nothing better than spending time with a camera, and people, places, or things.
I am pro-LGBQT, pro-love, anti-racist, special-needs friendly, and also friendly.
