My story

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”

— Don McCullin


This is one of my favorite photography quotes, and it is very true. I have always enjoyed capturing special moments with my camera but it wasn’t until I was fifteen that I started to pursue photography as a career. I have been teaching myself and growing as a photographer since 2015, and I continue to learn, grow and try new things. It means a lot to me when people can truly feel something real from one of my pictures, whether it’s from capturing the emotion of people or the excitement and thrill of an adventure. My goal is to take people on adventures through my camera and help them see the world even if they never fly to faraway places. I also want to encourage people to get outside and take in the beauty that is all around them! Adventure is just outside your door all you have to do is seek it, and you will always find it. Life is an adventure in itself, live it to the fullest!
