How I got into photography...

Finding an interest in photography very early in life, I found a position as an assistant photographer and worked my way up to a photographing position before I graduated from high school. I worked with this studio for over 5 years, working in both film and digital photography. I pursued a general associate’s degree at Carroll Community College in Westminster, Maryland, and completed my bachelor’s degree in Photography at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Savannah, Georgia.

At SCAD, I learned many facets of photography. I enjoyed the science and magic of traditional black and white photography, shooting, developing, and printing my own images in the darkroom. And I feel lucky to have printed in the color darkrooms as well. I worked with 35 mm film cameras and digital cameras, medium format film cameras and digital cameras, and large format film cameras including 4x5 and 8x10. Like many photography students, I shot with a plastic Holga camera too, and even made my own functional camera from a shoe box! I had the opportunity to experiment with alternative processes including cyan printing, salt printing, and contact printing. I took digital printing classes, digital retouching, studio lighting, and portraiture classes. I learned how to mount, mat, and frame my work and how to use archival methods and materials to ensure that my end product would last for years to come. I also won two major student photo contests and was published in PDNedu magazine (read more in my NEWS section)!

And I keep learning. Every day. I learn on the job. I learn from my colleagues. And I enjoy pursuing additional educational opportunities in photography, business and marketing, among other topics. I love this medium and will never stop evolving my skills!

About my passion...

I love that with photography, I can create something that nobody else sees. With a medium that relies solely on light, you learn how to enhance your subject by modifying your light, changing your angle, adding light or taking it away... learning to control your light sources is key to creating photographic art, no matter the subject.
