I feel like writing an autobiography has got to be one of the hardest things on earth. How do you write about yourself with out coming off as conceited? But I feel it is a necessary evil to explain the love that I have for photography, so here is a shot.
I didn’t start with a camera at the age of 5 like most photographers, but I have been in love with art (mainly sketching and sculpture) since middle school, and have always found the works of the greats to take my breath away. What got me into photography was a college internship out west in Idaho (I grew up in Maryland), where I would be exposed to new places and experiences. I bought a camera for that trip, and remembered filling card after card on all the random excursions and weekend trips we would go on. After using that point and shoot for a few years, I realized it couldn’t capture the feeling and essence of places the way I wanted it to, and an upgrade to an SLR was necessary. The addiction truly took hold when I saw that first great picture on the back LCD of that camera.
I hate being pigeon holed into one genre of photography. Why limit what I capture, when there is so much in this world to see and experience? As a result my photography is pretty diversified, but I feel this opens me up to new styles and techniques that some genre specific photographers have to forgo. I hope you enjoy looking at my pictures as much as I love taking them!
