Hi, this is a page of some of my favorite photos that I have taken recently. I really enjoy photography because it is a way to immortalize a moment. Also, with photo-editing you can add so many cool effects to make your photos even more special. I hope as the year continues I can get even more photographs to add to this page. My next goal would be to find a way to add the work I’ve done with film in a way that shows the whole process that goes into it.

I first started out taking photos on a film camera and fell in love with this hobby. Now I do all my work with a digital camera and that has expanded my abilities so much. There is just so much more freedom in digital photography in terms of editing, it’s like I can take a photo and turn it in to whatever I want. I still do shoot film from time to time just to take me back to my roots and try new techniques out. The challenge of not knowing wether or not my picture is going to come out right is my favorite, especially because you never know until you develop the photo.

One day I hope to be able to shoot my own photos for my career and not have to outsource a photographer. Being well rounded in today’s job market is the only way to secure a job for a long time. Also, if I get skilled enough to be featured in publications like National Geographic I could travel the world … which is my end goal. For right now, I just want to possibly start a business where I can take photographs for commission. It would be a great way to work on my skill, as well as make me some money on the side.
