Photography is something that I have always been interested in. It captured my interest at a young age and the skill came naturally to me in respect to physically using the camera and composing images. As I experimented with the camera over the years my capability grew as well as my love for photography. This developing relationship drew me to take my first photography class in high school where I was introduced to the film process. This experience furthered my knowledge in the technical aspects of photography and sparked my interest in the medium as an art form, which I pursued in my college career.
I have experience with both film and digital photography but I work in digital; photographing subjects such as landscapes and objects, using scenes and arrangements that I come across naturally. I find myself photographing whatever is around me, using the camera to bring attention to things that others may not see. I try to cause the viewer to see the subject in a new or interesting way through my compositions: showing it from an uncommon perspective or focusing on a specific detail. I enjoy photographing items or details I come across, that may normally be overlooked by passersby. In this regard, I like the instantaneous quality that the camera possesses, capturing what it sees in that one brief second in an objective way that other mediums cannot provide.
