About

If you are looking to learn a little more about me and all that I stand for and all that I am about, then you are in the right place. Sometimes we visit web pages and we feel as if we do not really know the person who has set up the page, the one who has created all that we are seeing. I am here to share a little about myself with you so that you can understand who I am and all that I am about. Are you ready to learn a little about me and my life?

I am someone who has been passionate about photography for a long time. I was the kid who took their parents’ camera and used that to snap pictures of anyone and everyone who would post for me – and even those who would not. I spent time at holiday parties going around the room and making sure that every person in attendance was captured on film. I wanted to know that we would be able to look back at the pictures and remember that special day and all those who chose to spend time with us. I was lucky to have parents who supported me in what I was doing and who allowed me to pester their friends and our extended family. I do not know where I would be today if it were not for those early days and all of the pictures that I took.

After that early introduction to photography, I became obsessed. When I turned sixteen, I didn’t care if I got a car for my birthday or not. The thing that I was asking for was a beautiful new camera. I wanted something that was going to help me capture the kinds of pictures that I would be able to sell in order to buy my own car for myself. I knew that I wanted to make photography my career, and I asked my parents to buy a pretty pricey camera for me so that I could get practice in and gain new skills. I am so happy that they went ahead and bought me just what I was looking to get.

When I was nearing graduation, all of my friends asked me to take their senior pictures for them. Their parents had seen the work that I did and they liked it. They wanted to have me be the one to take pictures of their children. I was honored. I was younger than a lot of photographers out there, but I had proved myself. It felt great to spend that time with my friends and to make their photography sessions enjoyable. I wanted to do that for more people. I wanted to be someone who would help others see their beauty and who would make sure that every photography session that took place was something that was enjoyable and relaxing.

Growing up in the bustling city of Chicago, there were always things to do and see, and I have used my camera to capture many great sites and events. I have taken my camera with me to baseball games and basketball games. I have captured pictures of sports players that others have seen and found to be amazing. I have spent time in nature while in the city, checking out the many parks and taking pictures of flowers and animals. I know that I am lucky that I grew up in such a great place and that I still have the chance to call that city my home. I will always love Chicago and I will always enjoy capturing pictures of her.

I am so excited to have a future in photography. I look forward to growing my education in regard to photography and the cameras and equipment that are out there. I want to better myself and become someone who is great at what I do. I look forward to all that the future might bring for me and the many ways that I will be able to grow in who I am as a photographer. I know that the only career for me is one where I can hold up my camera and capture great moments.
