How did you get interested in photography?
Photography has always been a passion of mine. I would say that my father got me into photography - he always used to let me use his camera when I was younger.
What motivates you to pursue your passion and capture your next photo? And do you have a favorite experience related to capturing a photo?
I am always motivated to take photos and I think the biggest thing that motivates me is the idea that my photos could be used to show objects that no one else can see. A camera can express the world like no other instrument. My favorite experience related to taking photos was this past summer on my National Geographic student expedition trip. It opened my world to a new style of taking photos.
Do you have a preference, digital or film?
I shoot both digital and film.
What has Oakwood’s Photo department taught you about being a photographer?
Oakwood has given me the opportunity to learn how to develop and process film. Mike, the photography teacher, has taught me to be a hard working photographer.
Do you have a favorite photographer?
I do have a favorite photographer. Morgan Levy is one of my favorite photographers.
Do you have a favorite subject to shoot?
My favorite subject to shoot is wildlife. I love taking photos of animals in their natural habitat.
Is there a specific process that you use to capture, upload, and edit your work?
I use my Cannon 70d camera. I also use Adobe Light-room which is an editing software I use it to edit and manage
