I first picked up a camera more than 10 years ago. Since then, I have photographed subjects of various types. Like many before me, I started with and still enjoy landscape photography. I have spent a great number of hours shooting sports and event photography. I still pride myself on being a single shot photographer rather than relying on a rapid fire shutter, quality over quantity. I've also shot a few weddings and they are a challenge in their own right, a combination of product, portrait, and event photography. I've finally settled into where I believe I belong with portraits and headshots, especially low key and natural color. But, I do still work in a variety of genres.
I am always looking to improve my skills through formal education, independent study and practice, practice, practice. I'm a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography's Portrait Photography course and working towards certification with Professional Photographers of America.
I earned a Bachelor's degree in Entrepreneurship from Ashford University in 2015, graduating Magna Cum Laude.
I have won First Place in the People category for the 2023 Downtown Artists Cooperative Annual Regional Open Exhibition in Clarksville, TN.
I have also been published in Brand Model Magazine.
