Photography has always been a passion of mine, ever since my grandmother gifted me a 35mm film camera when I was a kid. Once I got to college and was studying Journalism, I started to really appreciate a camera’s ability to be a tool for storytelling. I started to teach myself how to shoot from the ground up, determined to master manual shooting. It took a while and a lot of trial and error but eventually I got to the point where I am today, where I feel like I’ve found my voice.
I jumped down the rabbit hole without any rope, consumed more videos and articles than I care to admit, followed the advice of the people around me, and eventually learned how to get my images to the places I wanted them.
My favorite thing to do is learn different techniques and find fun ways to use them. I like to do HDR photography, timelapses, and long exposures (especially in daylight.) While I love to experiment, I absolutely love to photograph concerts. Capturing a powerful image of a musician in the zone is something I consider very special.
At the end of the day, if it involves the use of a camera, I want to do it. And I want to do it well.
My journey with photography has also led to me embracing my creativity and passion, bringing me to reach into my past to re-engage my love for music. When I am not shooting, my free time is consumed with enjoying production in Ableton Live.
This is my creative journey. Welcome along.
